1 Jesus, Jesus, Jesus only
Can my heart's deep longing still.
Him I crave when sad and lonely,
He alone shall rule my will,
With my hopes on Jesus built,
Cries my heart, Lord, as Thou wilt.
2 'Tis for Him that I am living,
Him I love and wish to see,
Unto Him I am but giving
What in love He gave to me.
In His blood I hide my guilt,
Saying, lead me as Thou wilt.
3 Let me earnestly endeavor
Thy good pleasure to fulfill;
In me, through me, with me ever,
Lord, accomplish Thou Thy will.
Call me not until I'm built
In Thy likeness, as Thou wilt.
4 With my voice to Thee uplifted,
I would praise Thy wondrous love.
Take my heart and make it gifted
With sweet music from above,
Landing Thee, whose blood was spilt,
Saying ever, as Thou wilt.
