|Text:||Jesus, Jesus, Only Jesus|
|Tune:||JESUS, JESUS, NICHTS ALS JESUS|
1 Jesus, Jesus, only Jesus
Can my heartfelt longing still.
Lo, I pledge myself to Jesus
What He wills alone to will.
For my heart, which He hath filled,
Ever cries, Lord, as Thou wilt.
2 One there is for whom I'm living,
Whom I love most tenderly;
Unto Jesus I am giving
What in love He gave to me.
Jesus' blood hides all my guilt;
Lord, oh, lead me as Thou wilt.
3 What to me may seem a treasure,
But displeasing is to Thee,
Oh, remove such harmful pleasure;
Give instead what profits me.
Let my heart by Thee be stilled;
Make me Thine, Lord, as Thou wilt.
4 Let me earnestly endeavor
Thy good pleasure to fulfil;
In me, through me, with me, ever,
Lord, accomplish Thou Thy will.
In Thy holy image built,
Let me die, Lord, as Thou wilt.
5 Jesus, constant be my praises,
For Thou unto me didst bring
Thine own self and all Thy graces
That I joyfully may sing:
Be it unto me, my Shield,
As Thou wilt, Lord, as Thou wilt.
