I Am His and He Is Mine

I Am His And He Is Mine

by Wade Robinson 1838-1877  and James Mountain 1844-1933

Loved with everlasting love, Led by grace that love to know –

Spirit breathing from above, Thou hast taught me it is so!

O this full and perfect peace, O this transport all divine –

In a love which cannot ceace, I am His and He is mine.

Heav’n above is softer blue, earth around is sweeter green;

Something lives in every hue Christless eyes have never seen!

Birds with gladder songs o’re-flow, Flowers with deeper beauties shine,

Since I know as now I know, I am His and He is mine.

Things that once were wild alarms Cannot now disturb my rest;

Closed in everlasting arms, Pillowed on the loving breast!

O to lie forever here; doubt and care and self resign,

While He whispers in my ear – I am His and He is mine.

His forever, only His – Who the Lord and me shall part?

Ah, with what a rest of bliss Christ can fill the loving heart!

Heaven and earth may fade and flee, First-born light in gloom decline,

But while God and I shall be I am His and He is mine.


Romans 8:31-39
