1 O Jesus, joy of loving hearts,
The fount of life and our true light,
We seek the peace your love imparts,
And stand rejoicing in your sight.
2 We taste in you our living bread,
And long to feast upon you still;
We drink of you, the fountain-head,
Our thirsting souls to quench and fill.
3 For you our restless spirits yearn
Where'er our changing lot is cast;
Glad, when your presence we discern,
Blest, when our faith can hold you fast.
4 O Jesus, ever with us stay;
Make all our moments calm and bright;
O chase the night of sin away,
Shed over the world your holy light.
