LOVE TO CHRIST




Do not I love Thee, O my Lord?
Behold my heart and see;
And turn each cursťd idol out,
That dares to rival Thee.


Do not I love Thee, O my Lord?
Then let me nothing love;
Dead be my heart to every joy,
When Jesus cannot move.


Is not Thy Name melodious still
To mine attentive ear?
Doth not each pulse with pleasure bound
My Saviorís voice to hear?


Hast Thou a lamb in all Thy flock
I would disdain to feed?
Hast Thou a foe, before whose face
I fear Thy cause to plead?


Would not mine ardent spirit vie
With angels round the throne,
To execute Thy sacred will,
And make Thy glory known?


Would not my heart pour forth its blood
In honour of Thy Name?
And challenge the cold hand of death
To damp the immortal flame?


Thou knowest I love Thee, dearest Lord,
But O, I long to soar
Far from the sphere of mortal joys,
And learn to love Thee more!


---Alternative verses---


Do not I love Thee, O my Lord?
Behold my heart and see;
And turn the dearest idol out,
That dares to rival Thee.


Do not I love Thee from my soul?
Then let me nothing love;
Dead be my heart to every joy
When Jesus cannot move.


Is not Thy Name melodious still
To mine attentive ear?
Doth not each pulse with pleasure beat
My Saviourís voice to hear?


Is not Thy Name melodious still
To mine attentive ear?
Doth not each pulse with pleasure bound
My Saviourís voice to hear?
