#266: Fade, Fade Each Earthly Joy

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Fade, fade, each earthly joy — Jesus is mine;

Break, ev’ry tender tie — Jesus is mine.

Dark is the wilderness,  Earth has no resting place;

Jesus alone can bless — Jesus is mine.

2

Tempt not my soul away — Jesus is mine;

Here would I ever stay — Jesus is mine

Perishing things of clay, Born but for one brief day,

Pass from my heart away — Jesus is mine.

3

Farewell, ye dreams of night — Jesus is mine;

Lost in this dawning bright — Jesus is mine.

All that my soul has tried Left but a dismal void;

Jesus has satisfied — Jesus is mine.

4

Farewell, mortality — Jesus is mine;

Welcome, eternity — Jesus is mine.

Welcome, O loved and blest, Welcome, sweet scenes of rest;

Welcome, my Savior’s breast — Jesus is mine.
