I love thee, my Saviour, I love thee, my Lord

Meter: 11.11.11.11 Appears in 3 hymnals Hymnal Title: Calvin Hymnary Project First Line: I love thee my Savior, I love thee, my Lord Lyrics: 1. O Jesus, my Savior, I know thou art mine, For thee all the pleasures of sin I resign; Of objects most pleasing, I love thee the best, Without thee I'm wretched, but with thee I'm blest. 2. Thy Spirit first taught me to know I was blind, Then taught me the way of salvation to find; And when I was sinking in gloomy despair, Thy mercy relieved me, and bid me not fear. 3. In vain I attempt to describe what I feel, The language of mortals or angels would fail; My Jesus is precious, my soul's in a flame, I'm raised to a rapture while praising his name. 4. I find him in singing, I find him in prayer, In sweet meditation he always is near; My constant companion, O may we ne'er part! All glory to Jesus, he dwells in my heart. 5. I love thee, my Savior, I love thee, my Lord, I love thy dear people, thy ways, and thy word; With tender emotion I love sinners too, Since Jesus has died to redeem them from woe. 6. My Jesus is precious--I cannot forbear, Though sinners despise me, his love to declare; His love overwhelms me; had I wings I'd fly To praise him in mansions prepared in the sky. 7. Then millions of ages my soul would employ In praising my Jesus, my love and my joy Without interruption, when all the glad throng With pleasures unceasing unite in the song. The Southern Harmony

Ananias Davisson

1780 - 1857 Person Name: Davison Hymnal Title: The Southern Harmony, and Musical Companion (New ed. thoroughly rev. and much enl.) Composer of "IMANDRA" in The Southern Harmony, and Musical Companion (New ed. thoroughly rev. and much enl.) Ananias Davisson (February 2, 1780 – October 21, 1857) was a singing school teacher, printer and compiler of shape note tunebooks. Davisson was born February 2, 1780 in Shenandoah County, Virginia. He spent his last years living on a farm at Weyer's Cave, about 14 miles from Dayton, Virginia, and died October 21, 1857. He is buried in the Massanutten-Cross Keys Cemetery, Rockingham County, Virginia. Davisson was a member and ruling elder of the Presbyterian Church. He is best known for his 1816 compilation the Kentucky Harmony (Harrisonburg, Virginia), which is generally considered the first Southern shape-note tunebook. Composer and publisher William B. Blake said it was "a book characteristic of that period, abounding in minor tunes." Other books published by Davisson were A Supplement to the Kentucky Harmony (Harrisonburg, Virginia: 1820), Introduction to Sacred Music, Extracted from the Kentucky Harmony and Chiefly Intended for the Benefit of Young Scholars, (Harrisonburg, Virginia: 1821), and A Small Collection of Sacred Music (Harrisonburg, Virginia: 1825). According to musicologist George Pullen Jackson, Davisson's compilations are "pioneer repositories of a sort of song that the rural South really liked." Perhaps his best-known tune is "Idumea," a minor tune very popular in Southern shape note circles and featured in the movie Cold Mountain. In addition to his own tunebooks, Davisson also printed Songs of Zion by James P. Carrell (1821) --en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
