Full Text

1. Lord, Thou art mine,
Send help to me,
And Thou art mine,
Deliver me.

2. Mercies are Thine,
Remember me,
Great sins are mine,
Oh, pardon me.

3. All light is Thine,
Shine now on me,
Darkness is mine,
Enlighten me.

4. True life is Thine,
Oh breathe on me,
All death is mine,
Lord, quicken me.

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 >
