Jesus is mine
words and music by Wally Fowler

1 I am so happy while I travel on the bright road to glory land,
And I am living so my life for Jesus will shine;
I am rejoicing and I'm singing, traveling with an angel band,
There is no sorrow in my heart for Jesus is mine.

Shouting and praising, voices up raising glory divine.
Praising, raising, joy tha's so divine,
Going to glory, telling the story, Jesus is mine;
Glory, story, He is ever mine;
Heading for Heaven, sins all forgiven, I can't repine,
Heaven, given, I cannot repine,
There is such gladness, and there's no sadness, glory light shines;
Gladness, sadness, there forever shines
Singing and shouting, never more doubting, love so divine,
Shouting, doubting, love is so divine,
Marching with winners, calling the sinners, Jesus is mine.
Winners, sinners, Jesus now is mine.
I have been given, treasures in heaven, I'll not repine,
Given, Heaven, I shall not repine,
Homeward I'm going, happy in knowing, Jesus is mine.
Going, knowing, He is ever mine.

2. There is no sadness in my life while walking with Christ the wondrous King,
And there is nothing in this world for which I would pine;
I have found joy that's so surpassing, that I just want to shout and sing,
Letting the world know I am glad that Jesus is mine.

3. Someday my labors will be over and I will reach that happy strand,
Where with friends and loved ones I on manna will dine.
I will forget my earthly trials, as I join in that heav'nly band,
Singing and shouting on that shore where Jesus is mine.

I'm looking to find a hymnal with the actual music to this song. My family first heard this song at a church in Anderson, Indiana, I believe, way back in the late 1970's. They had a "convention" of sorts with all sorts of quartets and a capella gospel groups. The quartet that sang this song that day was The Harmony Four. We fell in love with their renditions and wound up singing songs in their "style" for many years. I'm trying to hunt down as much music off their albums and give the sheet music to my family for Christmas, in hopes that we can get together more often and sing like we used to after church services.

If you have any suggestions, I would be very, very thankful.

Thank you in advance,
Angela Rittenhouse

I just registered, if that makes it easier to track me... my email is the same.

I'm quite interested in finding some old hymnals that have quartet-type music. "Special Sacred Selections" had many of the songs that we heard that day, and my family bought one copy of the book. (I wish we'd had a dozen.)

Are there other books of quartet gospel music out there? I'm sure there have to be, I just don't know where to begin my search.

Any help will be much appreciated!!

Glad to be related to the songwriter of Jesus is mine. Makes my heart happy to still hear this song and to think of the little house my cousin and her husband live in and to have seen the piano and just to have the memories of my childhood seeing her play. Had a spontaneous supper with them last year at a little hometown restaurant of ours. Very sweet good gentle people

Thanks, Guest, for noting that Virginia Stout Cook co-wrote this great song.
Oft times the original composers get overlooked.

I enjoyed researching the information provided in this thread.
Thanks to Angela, I found the Harmony Four recorded Jesus Is Mine
on a 1976 album Lead Me To That Rock. And I found sheet music

Jesus is mine has been requested a few times in our forum so for continuity sake I'm adding to this post, as it is the first.
The latest request was from a guest who heard The Whitey Cantrell Singers rendition.Here is their recording

Lord Bless

There's a wonderful version of this classic by Bill Gaither's Homecoming Friends on Irish Homecoming DVD released back in 2000. He does it like it was written. Like those quartets Mom and Dad took me to see growing up. It's hard to beat.
