Now I belong to Jesus


D               Em  A
Now I belong to Jesus,
A7               D
Jesus belongs to me,
D7                   G     Em
Not for the years of time alone,
 D      A7    D
But for eternity.

D                  G         A
Jesus my Lord will love me forever,
D                    G         A
From Him no power of evil will sever;
D           G       Em        A
He gave His life to ransom my soul,
G       Em      A
Now I belong to Him.

Once I was lost in sinís degradation;
Jesus came down to bring me salvation,
Lifted me up from sorrow and shame,
Now I belong to Him.

Joy floods my soul for Jesus has saved me,
Freed me from sin that long had enslaved me;
His precious blood He gave to redeem,
Now I belong to Him.
