117. Precious Jesus

1 Precious Jesus, O to love Thee!—
O to know that Thou art mine!
Jesus, all my heart I give Thee,
If Thou wilt but make me Thine.

Refrain:
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus,
Thou art all in all to me.
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus,
Thou art all in all to me.

2 Take my warmest, best affection,
Take my mem’ry, mind and will;
Then will all Thy loving Spirit,
All my emptied nature fill. [Refrain]

3 Bold I touch Thy sacred garments,
Fearless stretch my eager hand;
Virtue, like a healing fountain,
Freely flows at love’s command. [Refrain]

4 O how precious, dear Redeemer,
Is the love, the life divine!
I am saved, the word is spoken;
I am Christ’s, and He is mine.
