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.
