1 ALL that I was, my sin, my guilt,
My death, was all mine 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 grace that 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.
Horatius Bonar, 1856.
