Representative Text

1 The blessings Jesus gives to me
Are in His love outpoured,
But dearer far than these could be
Is He Himself, my Lord.

Refrain:
Jesus Himself with me doth bide,
More, more to me than all beside,
Jesus Himself, Jesus Himself,
Jesus Himself, my friend and guide.

2 My life, my strength are from His hand,
Gifts undeserved and free,
Yet more than e’en the life He planned
Is He Himself to me. [Refrain]

3 He gave me home with all its love
And life’s true friendship here,
Yet as a friend all friends above,
The Christ Himself is dear. [Refrain]

4 His gift, the golden sunshine glad,
Earth joys He doth bestow,
Yet sweeter, gladder far it is
The Christ Himself to know. [Refrain]

5 And when I reach that city fair,
Agleam with pearl and gold,
’Twill be Heav’n’s joy to greet Him there,
And He Himself behold. [Refrain]
