Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

56. Jesus! the Very Thought of Thee

1 Jesus, the very thought of Thee
With sweetness fills my breast;
But sweeter far Thy face to see
And in Thy presence rest.

Chorus:
O Thou the Balsam of the garden,
O Thou the sweet rose of Sharon!
Thou art the Lily of the Valley
How shall I part with Thee?

2 No voice can sing, no heart can frame,
Nor can the mem'ry find
A sweeter sound than Thy Jesus' name,
O Saviour of mankind. [Chorus]

3 O hope of ev'ry contrite heart,
O joy of all the meek,
To those who fall, how kind Thou art!
How good to those who seek! [Chorus]

4 But what to those who find? Ah, this
Nor tongue nor pen can show,
The love of Jesus, what it is,
None but His loved ones know. [Chorus]
