1. Jesus, Thy boundless love to me No thought can reach, no tongue declare; O bind my thankful heart to Thee, And reign without a rival there: Thine wholly, Thine alone, I am; Be Thou alone my constant flame. 2. O grant that nothing in my soul May dwell but Thy pure love alone; O may Thy love possess me whole, My joy, my treasure, and my crown: All coldness from my heart remove; May ev'ry act, word, thought, be love. 3. O Love, how gracious is Thy way! All fear before Thy presence flies; Care, anguish, sorrow melt away, Where'er Thy healing beams arise: O Jesus, nothing may I see, Nothing desire, or seek, but Thee. 4. In suff'ring, be Thy love my peace; In weakness, be Thy love my pow'r; And when the storms of life shall cease, O Jesus, in that solemn hour, In death as life be Thou my guide, And save me, who for me hast died.
