     35 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further? 36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. 37 And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly. 39 And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. 40 And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying. 41 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. 42 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment. 43 And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.(KJV)

1. Jesus, Thou art mine forever, 
Dearer far than earth to me; 
Neither life nor death shall sever 
Those sweet ties which bind to Thee. 

2. All were drear to me and lonely 
If Thy presence gladdened not; 
While I sing to Thee, Thee only, 
Mine’s an ever blissful lot. 

3. Thou alone art all my Treasure, 
Who hast died that I may live; 
Thou conferrest noblest pleasure, 
Who dost all my sins forgive. 

4. Brightest gems and fairest flowers 
Lose their beauty in Thy frown; 
Joy and peace, like balmy showers, 
In Thy smile come gently down. 

5. Jesus, Thou art mine forever; 
Never suffer me to stray. 
Let me in my weakness never 
Cast my priceless pearl away. 

6. Lamb of God, I do implore Thee, 
Guard, support me, lest I fall. 
Let me evermore adore Thee; 
Be my everlasting All.
