Fondly my foolish heart essays




Fondly my foolish heart essays
To augment the source of perfect bliss,
Love's all-sufficient sea to raise
With drops of creature happiness.


O Love, thy sovereign aid impart,
And guard the gift thyself hast given:
My portion thou, my treasure art,
And life, and happiness, and heaven.


Would aught on earth my wishes share,
Though dear as life the idol be,
The idol from my breast I'd tear,
Resolved to seek my all in thee.


Whate'er I fondly counted mine,
To thee, my Lord, I here restore;
Gladly I all for thee resign;
Give me thyself, I ask no more.
