All that I was, my sin, my guiltAuthor: Horatius Bonar (1808-1889, alt.)
Published in 105 hymnals
1 All that I was, my sin, my guilt,
My death, was all my own;
All that I am I owe to Thee,
My gracious God, alone.
2 The evil of my former state
Was mine, and only mine;
The good in which I now rejoice
Is Thine, and only Thine.
3 The darkness of my former state,
The bondage, all was mine;
The light of life in which I walk,
The liberty, is Thine.
4 Thy Word first made me feel my sin,
It taught me to believe;
Then, in believing, peace I found,
And now I live, I live!
5 All that I am, e'en here on earth,
All that I hope to be,
When Jesus comes and glory dawns,
I owe it, Lord, to Thee.
All that I was, my sin, my guilt. H. Bonar. [Pardon through Grace.] First published in the Bible Hymn Book, of which Dr. Bonar was editor, 1845, No. 219, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines and based upon 1 Cor. xv. 10, "By the grace of God I am what I am." It was repeated in subsequent editions of the Bible Hymn Book, and again in the author's Hymns of Faith and Hope, 1st series, 1857, and later editions, with the title "Mine and Thine." Its use, both in Great Britain and America, is somewhat extensive, and usually the text is unaltered, as in Stevenson's Hymns for Church and Home, 1873. The line, stanza 4, 1. 2, "Bade me in Christ believe," in Baptist Psalms & Hymns, 1858 and 1880, and the New Congregational Hymn Book, 1859, is from the former collection. The doxology as in Kennedy, 1863, is not in the original.
