Hymn Lyrics

THE LYRICS ~ “I am His & He is Mine”  

Loved with everlasting love,
drawn by grace that love to know,
Spirit sent from Christ above,
thou dost witness it is so.
O this full and precious peace
from his presence all divine;
in a love that cannot cease,
I am his and he is mine.

Heav’n above is deeper blue,
earth around is sweeter green,
that which glows in ev’ry hue
Christless eyes have never seen.
Birds in song his glories show,
flow’rs with richer beauties shine
since I know, as now I know,
I am his and he is mine.

Taste the goodness of the Lord:
welcomed home to his embrace,
all his love, as blood outpoured,
seals the pardon of his grace.
Can I doubt his love for me,
when I trace that love’s design?
By the cross of Calvary
I am his and he is mine.

His forever, only his–
who the Lord and me shall part?
Ah, with what a rest of bliss
Christ can fill the loving heart.
Heav’n and earth may fade and flee,
firstborn light in gloom decline,
but while God and I shall be,
I am his and he is mine.

The Author of the Hymn

THE AUTHORS ~ George Wade Robinson

Little is known about Robinson, but he was educated at Trinity College, Dublin, and New College, St. John’s Wood, London. He entered the congregational ministry and was co-pastor at York Street Chapel in Dublin with William Urwick the elder. He then became pastor at St. John’s Wood, Dudley, and at Union Street, Brighton. His best remembered poetry is in the hymn Loved with Everlasting Love with its chorus I am His and he His mine. 

It is said that he became ill and resigned as pastor. Little is known about the cause of his illness and death. but this great hymn was written one year before his death which came at the young age of 39. 

History of Hymn

THE HISTORY ~ “I am His & He is Mine” 

The words do communicate that Robinson knew the Lord and knew where he was going after his death. He talks about this full and perfect peace which he obviously received from the Lord. The second verse which shares what a believer can see that Christless eyes can never experience. And what a beautiful picture shared in verse three where the child of God is sheltered in the everlasting arms of the Father while the wild alarms of life are all around. The words of the fourth verse are even more powerful when one realizes that the author was ill and just a year away from death but realizing that nothing could part him from the Lord. What precious, powerful words. And what a joy to know that “I am His and He is mine!”
