Representative Text

1 In the hour when guilt assails me,
On His gracious name I call,
Then I find the heav’nly fulness,
Christ, my righteousness, my all!

All my song, when standing yonder,
Shall be—“Christ, my joy, my all!”
This shall ever be my anthem,
“Christ my glory, Christ my all!”
This shall ever be my anthem,
“Christ my glory, Christ my all!”

2 In the night when sorrow clouds me,
And the burning teardrops fall,
Then I sing the song of patience,
Christ, my brother and my all! [Refrain]

3 In the day when this immortal
Shall fling off its mortal thrall,
Then my song of resurrection
Shall be—“Christ, my all in all!” [Refrain]

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
