This is a powerful hymn of assurance, or it could be sung as a response to a sermon about God’s providence and salvation of His people. It would also work as a closing hymn to end a service that moves from an acknowledgement of pain and struggle to an assurance of the hope we have in Christ.
1. Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.
Refrain: This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.
2. Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love. (Refrain)
3. Perfect submission, all is at rest;
I in my Saviour am happy and blest,
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with his goodness, lost in his love. (Refrain)
