Representative Text

1 Jesus, Beloved of my heart,
Thy grace I earnestly implore;
Oh, if Thou wilt the gift impart,
I’ll use it but to love Thee more.

Refrain:
Let others dream of jewelled walls,
Of golden cities fair to see;
No glorious scene my soul enthralls,
Where’er Thou art is heaven for me.

2 The brightest forms of earthly love
Are dull beside Thine own to me;
With wistful eyes I look above,
And wonder when Thy face I’ll see. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ Paradise has many joys,
And flow’rs of beauty fair to see,
Not gates of pearl nor angel’s voice
Shall thrill my soul like love of Thee. [Refrain]

4 Without Thee, no celestial light
Shall shine to make my soul content;
But with Thee this sad earth is bright,
And glows with joy from heaven lent. [Refrain]
