Jesus, Thy boundless love to me, No thought can reach, no tongue declare; Unite my thankful heart to Thee, And reign without a rival there. To Thee alone, dear Lord, I live; Myself to Thee entirely give.
Oh, grant that nothing in my soul May dwell but Thy pure love alone! Oh, may Thy love possess me whole, My Joy, my Treasure, and my Crown. All coldness from my heart remove; My every act, word, thought, be love.
O Love, how cheering is Thy ray! All pain before Thy presence flies; Care, anguish, sorrow, melt away, Where’er Thy healing beams arise. O Jesus, nothing may I see, Nothing desire or seek, but Thee.
This love unwearied I pursue And dauntlessly to Thee aspire. Oh, may Thy love my hope renew, Burn in my soul like heav’nly fire. And day and night, be all my care To guard this sacred treasure there.
In suff’ring be Thy love my peace, In weakness be Thy love my pow’r; And when the storms of life shall cease, O Jesus, in that final hour, Be Thou my rod and staff and guide, And draw me safely to Thy side!
