1 ‘Tis mine to walk in the narrow way,
With Jesus for a guide;
‘Tis mine to stand in his strength today,
Whatever may betide;
‘Tis mine to have in my daily life,
His Spirit sweet and free:
Yes, freely mine are these gifts divine,
Thor’ Christ who died for me.

Refrain:
All things are mine, hallelujah!
Freely mine, freely mine;
All things are mine! oh, rejoice and sing!
Now and forever all are mine.

2 ‘Tis mine to know, in its rich supply,
The fullness of his love;
‘Tis mine to hold as the days pass by
The faith that looks above;
‘Tis mine to have, ‘mid the storms of life,
A Refuge near and strong:
Yes, freely mine are these gifts divine,
Thro’ Christ my shield and song. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis mine to watch for the coming Lord,
While waiting in this vale;
‘Tis mine to rest in the promised word,
And know it will not fail;
‘Tis mine to rise at the final day,
Eternal things to see:
Yes, freely mine are these gifts divine,
Thro’ Christ who died for me. [Refrain]
