“Jesus is mine” by John Newton

“Jesus is mine: in Him I have wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption, an interest in all the promises and in all the perfections of God.

He will guide me by His counsel, support me by His power, comfort me with His presence, while I am here. And afterwards, when flesh and heart fail, He will receive me to His glory.”

–John Newton, “Cardiphonia” in The Works of John Newton, Volume 1 (London: Hamilton, Adams & Co., 1824), 1: 488.
