Representative Text

1 Oh, to love Thee, precious Jesus,
Oh, to know that Thou art mine;
All my heart I give Thee, Jesus,
If Thou wilt but make it Thine.

Precious Jesus, precious Jesus,
Thou art all the world to me;
All of earth and all of Heaven,
All I need I find in Thee.

2 Take my warmest, best affections;
Take my memory, mind and will;
Then with all Thy loving spirit
All my emptied nature fill. [Refrain]

3 Oh, how precious, dear Redeemer,
Is the love that fills my soul!
It is done! The word is spoken!
"Be thou every whit made whole!" [Refrain]
