We are the Lord's, whether we live or die - We are the Lord's
(Carl Johann Philipp Spitta/Richard Massie/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

We are the Lord's.

1. We are the Lord's, whether we live or die;
  we are the Lord's, who for us all hath died;
we are the Lord's, and heirs of the Most High;
  we are the Lord's, and shall the Lord's abide.

2. We are the Lord's – to him then let us live,
  with soul and body, both with deeds and words,
while heart, and tongue, and life assurance give
  of this most precious truth: we are the Lord's!

3. We are the Lord's, – so shall our hearts ne'er fail,
  for one bright star its steady light affords,
to cheer and guide us thro' the gloomy vale,
  it is the blessed word: we are the Lord's!

4. We are the Lord's, who will preserve us still,
  when none beside him help to us accords;
in death's last conflict we will fear no ill,
  thy word abideth true: we are the Lord's.

Richard Massie, Lyra Domestica II, 1864, 81.
Translated from the German Wir sind des Herrn, wir leben oder sterben! - Wir sind des Herrn
of Carl Johann Philipp Spitta.
