In Thy dear name all heart-joys meet:
But oh, than all else far more dear,
The thought that Thou art ever near!
2 No name is heard more sweet than this,
No word is sung more full of bliss,
No thought brings sweeter comfort nigh,
Than Jesus, Son of God most high.
3 Jesus, the hope of souls forlorn,
How good to them for sin that mourn!
To them that seek Thee, oh, how kind!
But what art Thou to them that find!
4 No tongue of mortal can express,
No letters write the blessedness;
He only who hath proved it knows
What bliss from love of Jesus flows.
5 O Jesus, King of wondrous might!
O Victor, glorious from the fight!
Sweetness that may not be expressed,
And altogether loveliest!
6 Abide with us, O Lord, to-day,
And fill us with Thy grace, we pray;
And with Thine own true sweetness feed
Our souls, from sin and darkness freed. Used With Tune: JESUS, THE THOUGHT OF THEE
Jesus, the thought of Thee, how sweet!
