If God is mine, then present things

Full Text

1.
If God is mine, then present things,
And things to come, are mine;
Yea, Christ, his word, and Spirit too,
And glory all divine.

2.
If he is mine, then from his love,
He every trouble sends;
All things are working for my good,
And bliss his rod attends

3.
If he is mine, I need not fear
The rage of earth and hell;
He will support my feeble frame,
Their utmost force repel.

4.
If he is mine, let friends forsake,—
Let wealth and honors flee—
Sure he, who giveth me himself,
Is more than these to me.

5.
If he is mine, I'll boldly pass
Through death's tremendous vale:
He is a solid comfort, when
All other comforts fail.

6.
Oh, tell me, Lord! that thou art mine;
What can I wish beside?
My soul shall at the fountain live,
When all the streams are dried.

The Southern Harmony

Author: Benjamin Beddome

Benjamin Beddome was born at Henley-in Arden, Warwickshire, January 23, 1717. His father was a Baptist minister. He studied at various places, and began preaching in 1740. He was pastor of a Baptist society at Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire, until his death in 1795. In 1770, he received the degree of M.A. from the Baptist College in Providence, Rhode Island. He published several discourses and hymns. "His hymns, to the number of 830, were published in 1818, with a recommendation from Robert Hall." Montgomery speaks of him as a "writer worthy of honour both for the quantity and the quality of his hymns." --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >

Notes

If God is mine, then present things. B. Beddome. [Security in God.] This hymn is in common use in two forms:—
1. If God is mine, then present things. This appeared in the 10th ed. of Rippon's Selection, 1800, No. 287, pt. ii., in 6 stanzas of 4 lines, and is in somewhat extensive use in America, but usually in an abridged form.
2. If Christ is mine, then all is mine. This was given from Beddome's manuscript in his (posthumous) Hymns, &c, 1817, No. 564, in 6 stanzas of 4 lines. This is also in common use and more especially in America. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.]
