Jesus! The very thought of Thee With sweetness fills my breast;
But better far Thy face to see, And in Thy presence rest.

No voice can sing, no heart can frame, Nor can the memory find
A sweeter sound than Thy blest name, O Savior of mankind!

O hope of every contrite heart, oh joy of all the meek,
To those who fall, how kind Thou art: how good to those who seek!

But what to those who find? Ah! this no tongue, nor pen can show;
The love of Jesus! What it is none but his loved ones know.

Savior, our only joy be Thou, as Thou our crown shalt be;
Be Thou, oh Lord, our glory now, and through eternity.
