 "Whose I Am" by Frances Ridley Havergal

Whose I Am
Jesus, Master, whose I am,
Purchased Thine alone to be,
By Thy blood, O spotless Lamb,
Shed so willingly for me;
Let my heart be all Thine own,
Let me live to Thee alone.

Other lords have long held sway;
Now, Thy name alone to bear,
Thy dear voice alone obey,
Is my daily, hourly prayer.
Whom have I in heaven but Thee?
Nothing else my joy can be.

Jesus, Master! I am Thine;
Keep me faithful, keep me near;
Let Thy presence in me shine
All my homeward way to cheer.
Jesus! at Thy feet I fall,
Oh, be Thou my All-in-all.

 Re: "Whose I Am" by Frances Ridley Havergal

At first, I misread the title of this poem, I thought is said, 'Whose Am I'.

All I would now say is, if we do not belong to Jesus, then, whose am I?

 Re:

Yes it is a scary question, for a person who is leaning on the arm of flesh.
As a person belonging to the world will lean on his strength.- The arm of flesh as the bible puts it.
And the arm of flesh will always fail for a child of God.

Belonging to Jesus is the greatest privilage any human being can get,and once we are children of God, no matter what our circumstances may look like, the safest place for us is the Shdow of the Almighty;

And as Peter said to Jesus,
"Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life." John 6:68
