Jesus, The Very Thought Of Thee, With Sweetness Fills My Breast

John_3-5: Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God

John_3-5: Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God

Jesus, the very thought of Thee

With sweetness fills my breast;

But sweeter far Thy face to see,

And in Thy presence rest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nor voice can sing, nor heart

can frame,

Nor can the memory find

A sweeter sound than Thy blest

name,

O Saviour of mankind.

 

 

 

 

 

 

O Hope of every contrite heart,

O joy of all the meek,

To those who fall, how kind

Thou art!

How good to those who seek!

 

 

 

 

 

But what to those who find? Ah,

this

Nor tongue nor pen can show;

The love of Jesus, what it is,

None but His loved ones know.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jesus, our only joy be Thou,

As Thou our prize wilt be;

Jesus, be Thou our glory now,

And through eternity.
