Representative Text

1. Thine, Jesus, Thine,
No more this heart of mine
Shall seek its joy apart from Thee;
The world is crucified to me,
And I am Thine,
And I am Thine.

2. Thine, Thine alone,
My joy, my hope, my crown;
Now earthly things may fade and die,
They charm my soul no more, for I
Am Thine alone,
Am Thine alone.

3. Thine, ever Thine,
Forever to recline
On love eternal, fixed and sure,
Yes, I am Thine forevermore,
Lord Jesus, Thine,
Lord Jesus, Thine.

4. Thine, Jesus, Thine,
Soon in Thy crown to shine,
When from the glory Thou shalt come
And with Thy saints shall take me home,
Lord Jesus, come,
Lord Jesus, come.

His first printed hymn, "Hark! in the presence of our God," was written in September, 1842, at Carisbrooke Castle, and printed in the Youth’s Magazine in November of the same year. Since then he has written over 300, and of these a large proportion are in common use. They appeared in magazines and small mission hymn-books, including:— (1) The Youth's Magazine; (2) The British Messenger; (3) The London Messenger; (4) Trotter's Evangelical Hymn Book, 1860; (5) The Ambassador… Go to person page >
