364. Jesus, Thy Boundless Love to Me

1 Jesus, Thy boundless love to me
No thought can reach, no tongue declare;
O knit my thankful heart to Thee,
And reign without a rival there!
Thine wholly, Thine alone, I'd live,
Myself to Thee entirely give.

2 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!

3 In suffering 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 solemn hour,
In death as life be Thou my Guide,
And save me, who for me hast died.
