291. [Jesus, the very thought of thee]

4 Jesus, our only joy,
as thou our prize wilt be;
Jesus, be thou our glory
through eternity.

4 Lord, let us all agree
this blessed peace to gain;
unite our hearts to thee,
and love to all will reign.

6 This is the bond of perfectness,
thy charity;
O let us still possess the mind
that was in thee.
