I Belong to Jesus

This is the sixth song on the new record. I rewrote the music to this hymn by M. Fraser in mid 2005. The idea of being purchased by God with the blood of Jesus is one of the truths of the gospel that I have been thinking on for the past few years so I was very excited to find these simple words. After reading them, the melody came out almost all at once.

If you are interested in purchasing the record, it is available at CDBaby or if you would like to buy it directly from me just send me a comment.

I Belong to Jesus (listen)

I belong to Jesus; I am not my own;
All I have and all I am, Shall be his alone.
I belong to Jesus; He is Lord and King,
Reigning in my inmost heart, Over ev’rything.

I belong to Jesus; Blessed, blessed thought!
With his own most precious blood, Has my soul been bought.
I belong to Jesus; He has died for me;
I am his and he is mine, Through eternity.

I belong to Jesus; He will keep my soul,
When the deathly waters dark, Round about me roll.
I belong to Jesus; And fore’er I’ll stand
With my precious Saviour there, In his glorious land.

  1. I miss playing these songs with you Nathan! Let me know where to send the money for a CD. It was awesome seeing you when you were in town. It looks like we’ll be in your neck of the woods in early July. Hopefully we can all hook up.

  2. Dan and I have been singing this song to ourselves and to Eli since you posted it. We love it! it makes us cry for two reasons 1) the words. 2) we miss you and worshiping together at Green Lake. Love you brother.

  3. I was singing this song to myself today as I was thinking about what I am doing here at seminary, who I am and where I have been, it was also one of the songs played during my last Sunday in Seattle. I googled the words and this popped up. I didn’t even know you had a new cd out! I just ordered it and am looking forward to getting it. Hope to make it out to Indy soon!

    1. That’s awesome Justin. I am so glad that it is a blessing to you. I am very excited to have you in the midwest and we would love to have you come visit.

  4. love the words to “I belong to Jesus”. You have captured the essence of these lyrics with a very powerful melody. I enjoy singing this song while i drive and love it when the band sings on the Lord’s Day at Redeemer. Keep up the great work, thank you for this song!
