Hymn/Song Information

I KNOW HE IS MINE




A long time I wandered
in darkness and sin,
And wondered if ever
the light would shine in;
I heard Christian friends speak
of raptures divine,
And I wished—how I wished—
that their Savior were mine.


I heard the glad gospel
of “good will to men”;
I read “whosoever”
again and again;
I said to my soul,
“Can that promise be thine?”
And then began hoping
that Jesus was mine.


Oh, mercy surprising!
He saves even me!
“Thy portion forever,”
He says, “will I be”;
On His Word I am resting—
assurance divine:
I am “hoping” no longer,
I know He is mine.
