1 Saviour, Whom I would fain to love,
Jesus, crucified for me,
Fix my roving heart above,
Draw me nearer unto Thee.
Thee to praise and Thee to know
Make the joy of saints below:
Thee to see and Thee to love
Make the bliss of saints above.
2 Lord, it is not life to live,
If Thy presence Thou deny:
Lord, if Thou Thy presence give,
'Tis no longer death to die.
Source and Giver of repose,
Only from Thy love it flows;
Peace and happiness are Thine,
Mine they are, if Thou art mine.
The Hymnal: revised and enlarged as adopted by the General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America in the year of our Lord 1892
