Latinised Hymns

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine:
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God;
Born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.
THIS IS MY STORY, THIS IS MY SONG,
PRAISING MY SAVIOUR ALL THE DAY LONG.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture burst on my sight;
Angels descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Saviour am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with his goodness, lost in his love.

F van Alstyne

Pignus amandum, Jesu meus,
anticipatur caeleste decus;
capto salutem quam mihi das;
sanguine purgans vivificas.
HOC TIBI DICENS HOCCE CANO,
PERQUE DIEM TE LAUDE COLO.

Pareo totus, et placuit;
meque voluptas visa rapit;
dona chorus fert superior:
venia sonat, mussat amor.

Pareo totus; fit requies;
quippe beator, Salutifer, es
teque supernum opperior;
bonitas implet, mergit amor.
