     1 And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. 2 And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. 3 And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. 4 And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. 6 And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully. 7 And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner. 8 And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. 9 And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.(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.
