2899. I Love Thee

1. I love Thee, I love Thee, I love Thee, my Lord;
I love Thee, my Savior, I love Thee, my God;
I love Thee, I love Thee, and that Thou dost know;
But how much I love Thee my actions will show.

2. I’m happy, I’m happy, oh, wondrous account!
My joys are immortal, I stand on the mount;
I gaze on my treasure and long to be there,
With Jesus and angels and kindred so dear.

3. O Jesus, my Savior, with Thee I am blessed.
My life and salvation, my joy and my rest.
Thy name be my theme, and Thy love be my song;
Thy grace shall inspire both my heart and my tongue.

4. Oh, who’s like my Savior? He’s Salem’s bright king;
He smiles and He loves me and helps me to sing:
I’ll praise him, I’ll praise Him with notes loud and clear,
While rivers of pleasure my spirit shall cheer.
