O no, there's nothing more to [I] seek

O no, there's nothing more to [I] seek

Full Text

1 Oh, no! there's nothing more I seek,
With Jesus ever near;
My lips I feel are frail to speak
His love to me so dear.
From day to day He strengthens me
With never failing grace;
To be with Him is all I seek,—
To see His blessed face.

I'm satisfied with Jesus here,
He's ev'rything to me;
His dying love has won my heart,
And now He sets me free.

2 They bid me seek the world's delight,
The charms that others see;
But what to me is change of sight,
While Jesus dwells with me?
'Tis true that I beheld them once,
Yet never found relief;
And tho' they won from me a smile,
My heart was full of grief. [Chorus]

3 For oh! there are so many things
Recall His love to me,
He washed away my many sins
With His own blood so free.
The pride that reigned within my heart,
My stern rebellious will,
And ev'ry evil thought and wish
Has vanished at His will. [Chorus]
