Jesus Thy Boundless Love To Me

1 Jesus, Thy boundless love to me,
no thought can reach, no tongue declare;
O knit my thankful heart to Thee,
and reign without a rival there.
Thine wholly, Thine alone, I am;
be Thou my Rod and Staff and Guide.

2 O grant that nothing in my soul
may dwell, but Thy pure love alone!
O may Thy love possess my whole,
my Joy, my Treasure, and my Crown.
All coldness from my heart remove;
my every act, word, thought, be love.

3 O Love, how cheering is thy ray!
All pain 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 This love unwearied I pursue
and dauntlessly to Thee aspire.
O may Thy love my hope renew,
burn in my soul like heav’nly fire.
And day and night, be all my care
to guard this sacred treasure there.
