1 ‘Tis mine to walk in the narrow way,
With Jesus for a guide;
‘Tis mine to stand in his strength today,
Whatever may betide;
‘Tis mine to have in my daily life,
His Spirit sweet and free:
Yes, freely mine are these gifts divine,
Thor’ Christ who died for me.

Refrain:
All things are mine, hallelujah!
Freely mine, freely mine;
All things are mine! oh, rejoice and sing!
Now and forever all are mine.

2 ‘Tis mine to know, in its rich supply,
The fullness of his love;
‘Tis mine to hold as the days pass by
The faith that looks above;
‘Tis mine to have, ‘mid the storms of life,
A Refuge near and strong:
Yes, freely mine are these gifts divine,
Thro’ Christ my shield and song. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis mine to watch for the coming Lord,
While waiting in this vale;
‘Tis mine to rest in the promised word,
And know it will not fail;
‘Tis mine to rise at the final day,
Eternal things to see:
Yes, freely mine are these gifts divine,
Thro’ Christ who died for me. [Refrain]

Chicago writer of hymns, religious and romantic poetry, and temperance songs. Edward Albert Barnes was born January 24, 1842. Little is known about his personal history beyond his own accounts of his songwriting process, his relationship with two younger sisters, Lillie and Della, and his religious beliefs. Barnes was a life-long Chicagoan and devoted his time to the Christian church and to the American temperance movement. His career as a published writer began in 1865 and ended in 1893. Songs such as “Are You Coming to the Light?” and “Tent and Mansion” were distributed widely in hymnals and church programs, while his temperance songs were included in music books that circulated in local and national church communities.
