Representative Text

1 Holy Jesus, lovely Lamb,
Thine and only thine I am;
Take my body, spirit, soul,
Only thou possess the whole.

2 Thou my dearest object be,
Let me ever cleave to thee;
Let me choose the better part,
Let me give thee all my heart.

3 Whom have I on earth below?
Only thee I wish to know;
Whom Have I in heaven but thee?
Thou art all in all to me.

4 All my treasure is above,
My best portion is thy love;
Who the worth of love can tell?
Infinite unsearchable!

5 Nothing else may I require;
Let me thee alone desire;
Pleased with what thy love provides,
Weaned from all the world besides.
