Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	Jesus, the very thought of Thee 
	With sweetness fills my breast; 
	But sweeter far Thy face to see, 
	And in Thy presence rest.

2.	No voice can sing, no heart can frame, 
	Nor can the mem'ry find 
	A sweeter sound than Jesus' name, 
	O Savior of mankind! 

3.	O Hope of ev'ry contrite heart! 
	O Joy of all the meek! 
	To those who fall, how kind Thou art! 
	How good to those who seek!

4.	But what to those who find?  ah! this, 
	No tongue or pen can show 
	The love of Jesus, what it is 
	None but His loved ones know.
