39a. Detroit

1. Do not I love Thee, Oh my Lord? Behold my heart, and see, And turn each cursed idol out, That dares to rival Thee. 2. Do not I love Thee from my soul? Then let me nothing love; Dead be my heart to ev’ry joy When Jesus cannot move. 3. Thou know’st I love Thee, dearest Lord, But Oh I long to soar Far from the sphere of mortal joys, And learn to love Thee more.
