1 My God I am thine;
'Tis Comfort Divine,
To know that the Sav'our of Sinners is mine.
2 In the heav'nly Lamb
Thrice happy I am.
My Heart doth rejoice at the Sound of his Name.
3 True Pleasures abound
In the rapt'rous Sound,
Whoever hath found it, hath Paradise found.
4 My Jesus to know,
And feel his Blood flow,
'Tis Life everlasting, 'tis Heaven below.
5 Yet onward I haste
To the heav'nly Feast:
That, that is the Fulness; but this is the Taste.
6 And this I shall prove,
'Till glad I remove
To the Heav'n of Heavens in Jesus's Love.

My God, I am Thine; What a comfort divine. C. Wesley. Peace with God.] Appeared in Hymns and Sacred Poems, 1749, vol. i., as No. 16 of "Hymns for Believers," in 6 stanzas of 3 lines (Poetical Works, 1868-72, vol. v. p. 24). It was republished in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1780, No. 197, and thence passed into most of the Methodist hymnbooks throughout all English-speaking countries. Few hymns amongst the Methodists have equalled it in the influence which it has had upon the sick and dying. Numerous instances of great interest are given in G. J. Stevenson's Methodist Hymn Book Notes, 1883, p. 167. The stanzas most frequently quoted are, i. "My God, I am Thine," and iv., "My Jesus to know; And feel His blood flow." Outside of the Methodist bodies its use is limited.
