Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Holy Jesus, lovely lamb, thine and only

Holy Jesus, lovely lamb, thine and only

Published in 21 hymnals

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.
