6651. Lovest Thou Me

1 Love is the key of life and death,
Of hidden, heavenly mystery;
Of all Christ is, of all he saith,
Love is the key.

2 As three times to his saint he saith,
He saith to me, he saith to thee,
Breathing his grace-conferring breath:
"Lov'st thou me?"

3 Ah, Lord, I have such feeble faith,
Such feeble hope to comfort me;
But love it is strong as death,
And I love thee.
