My Jesus, pierced for Love of me

Representative Text

1 My Jesus, pierced for love of me,
Thankful enough how can I be?
O blessed Saviour, if I might
Thine everlasting love requite.

2 I pray Thee, hither come to me;
Revive me of Thy charity:
For Thee my spirit yearneth sore;
Would I were worthy of Thee more!

3 As harts, athirst upon the chase,
Speed to the water brooks apace,
So longeth sore mine heart for Thee:
O Jesus, Jesus, haste to me!
