1. My God, I am thine,
What a comfort divine,
What a blessing to know that my Jesus is mine!
In the heavenly Lamb
Thrice happy I am;
My heart it doth dance to the sound of thy name.
2. True pleasures abound
In the rapturous sound;
And whoever hath found it hath paradise found.
My Jesus to know,
And feel his blood flow,
’Tis life everlasting, ’tis heaven below.
3 Yet onward I haste
To the heavenly feast;
That, that is the fullness: but this is the taste.
And this I shall prove,
’Till with joy I remove
To the heaven of heavens of Jesus’s love.

My God, I am Thine; What a comfort divine. C. Wesley. Peace with God.] Appeared in Hymns and Sacred Poems, 1749, vol. i., as No. 16 of "Hymns for Believers," in 6 stanzas of 3 lines (Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. v. p. 24). It was republished in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1780, No. 197, and thence passed into most of the Methodist hymnbooks throughout all English-speaking countries. Few hymns amongst the Methodists have equalled it in the influence which it has had upon the sick and dying. Numerous instances of great interest are given in G. J. Stevenson's Methodist Hymn Book Notes, 1883, p. 167. The stanzas most frequently quoted are, i. "My God, I am Thine," and iv., "My Jesus to know; And feel His blood flow." Outside of the Methodist bodies its use is limited.
