Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Thou art all love, my dearest Lord

Thou art all love, my dearest Lord

Published in 3 hymnals

Full Text

1 Thou art all Love, my dearest Lord,
thou art all lovely too:
Thy Love I at they Table taste,
thy Loveliness I view.
But Thou more lovely art to me
for all that thou hast born:
Each Cloud set off thy Lustre more;
thee all thy Scars adorn.

2 Thy Garments tinctur'd with thy Blood,
the best and noblest Dye,
Out-shine the Robes that Princes wear;
thy Thorns their Gems out vie.
That I may be all Love to thee,
and lovely like thee too,
O cleanse me with thy precious Blood,
and me thy Beauty shew.

3 My former Vows I now renew
O Lord, as thou art mine,
I freely give my Heart to thee,
for ever I'll be thine.
