158 - Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee

MIDI MP3 Partition

1
Jesus, the very thought of Thee,
With sweetness fills the breast;
But sweeter far Thy face to see,
And in thy presence rest.

2
No voice can sing, no heart can frame,
Nor can the memory find
A sweeter sound than Jesus' name,
The Savior of mankind.

3
O hope of every contrite heart!
O joy of all the meek,
To those who fall, how kind thou art!
How good to those who seek!

4
But what to those who find? Ah, this
Nor tongue nor pen can show:
The love of Jesus—what it is,
None but his loved ones know.

5
Jesus, our only joy be Thou,
As Thou our prize wilt be;
In Thee be all our glory now,
And through eternity.
