I will love thee, all my treasure

Representative Text

1 I will love Thee, all my treasure,
I will love Thee all my strength;
I will love Thee without measure,
And without a stain at length.

Refrain:
I will love in joy or sorrow,
While I in this body dwell;
I will love today, tomorrow,
With a love no tongue can tell.

2 I will praise Thee, Sun of Glory!
For the bliss Thy beams have bro't;
I will praise Thee, will adore Thee,
For the light I long have sought. [Refrain]

3 Be my heart more warmly glowing,
Sweet and calm the tears I shed;
And its love, its ardor showing,
Let my spirit onward tread. [Refrain]
