Lord Jesus, Who Would Think That I Am Thine? - Poem by Christina Georgina Rossetti

Lord Jesus, who would think that I am Thine?
Ah, who would think
Who sees me ready to turn back or sink,
That Thou art mine?


I cannot hold Thee fast though Thou art mine:
Hold Thou me fast,
So earth shall know at last and heaven at last
That I am Thine.

    A great prayer! A great consolation in Christ! A great truth of Christianity - that it is God who holds the Christians to last, and not the redeemed sinners on their own....! (Report)Reply
