1 Fade, fade, each earthly joy;
Jesus is mine.
Break ev'ry tender tie;
Jesus is mine.
Dark is the wilderness,
Earth has no resting place,
Jesus alone can bless;
Jesus is mine.

2 Tempt not my soul away;
Jesus is mine.
Here would I ever stay;
Jesus is mine.
Perishing things of clay,
Born but for one brief day,
Pass from my heart away;
Jesus is mine.

3 Farewell, ye dreams of night;
Jesus is mine.
Lost in this dawning bright,
Jesus is mine.
All that my soul has tried
Left but a dismal void;
Jesus has satisfied;
Jesus is mine.

3 Farewell, mortality;
Jesus is mine.
Welcome, eternity;
Jesus is mine.
Welcome, O loved and blest,
Welcome, sweet scenes of rest,
Welcome, my Savior’s breast;
Jesus is mine.

Bonar, Jane Catharine, née Lundie, daughter of the Rev. Robert Lundie, some time minister of the parish of Kelso, born at Kelso Manse, December, 1821, married, in 1843, to Dr. H.

Notes

Pass away, earthly joy. Jesus, all in all, which appeared in the Songs for the Wilderness, 2nd Series, 1844, and again in the Bible Hymn Book, 1845, No. 108, in 4 stanzas of 8 lines, including the refrain, "Jesus is mine!" The original text is given in Dr. Hatfield's Church Hymn Book. 1372, No. 661. Sometimes this is altered to "Fade, fade, each earthly joy," as in the American Songs for the Sanctuary, 1865, No. 114, and others. The last stanza of this hymn is also st. iv. of the cento, "Now I have found a friend," &c. (q. v.)
