Christ is Mine Forevermore — Sunday Song

Our pastor will be starting a new sermon series on the book of Philippians this Sunday so I thought it would be good to have a new song to go along with it. This song by CityAlight is so rich in scriptural truth that it would be appropriate for any worship service. I think it will especially go along with our study of Philippians because the songs lyrics include “Christ completes His work in me” – which is found in Philippians 1:6. Also, toward the end of the song we have the exhortation to “Come rejoice, now, O my soul.” Rejoicing is a recurring theme in Philippians found in 1:18, 2:17, 2:18, 3:1, 4:4, and 4:10.  My prayer is that this song will be a source of strength and encouragement for our congregation.

This song declares the truth of our salvation and security in Jesus Christ.

Mine are days that God has numbered
I was made to walk with Him
Yet I look for worldly treasure
And forsake the King of kings
But mine is hope in my Redeemer
Though I fall, his love is sure
For Christ has paid for every failing
I am His forevermore

Mine are tears in times of sorrow
Darkness not yet understood
Through the valley I must travel
Where I see no earthly good
But mine is peace that flows from heaven
And the strength in times of need
I know my pain will not be wasted
Christ completes his work in me

Mine are days here as a stranger
Pilgrim on a narrow way
One with Christ I will encounter
Harm and hatred for his name
But mine is armour for this battle
Strong enough to last the war
And he has said he will deliver
Safely to the golden shore

And mine are keys to Zion city
Where beside the King I walk
For there my heart has found its treasure
Christ is mine forevermore
Come rejoice now, O my soul
For his love is my reward
Fear is gone and hope is sure
Christ is mine forevermore!
