Representative Text

1 Jesus, Jesus, I would be

2 Jesus, I am very sure
Thou canst ev'ry weakness cure;
If my feeble heart believe
All Thy fullness Thou wilt give.

3 Jesus, I am satisfied

Cause all thoughts of earth to flee,
Set my mind alone on Thee.

4 Jesus, fix me just as Thou
Wouldst delight to have me now;
Nothing would I have but Thee,
Be Thou all in all to me.
