Hymn/Song Information

JESUS ALONE DESERVES MY HEART




Ye earthly vanities! depart;
For ever hence remove;
Jesus alone deserves my heart,
And every thought of love.


His heart, where love and pity dwelt
In all their softest forms,
Sustained the heavy load of guilt
For lost, rebellious worms.


Can I my bleeding Saviour view,
And yet ungrateful prove?
And pierce his wounded heart anew,
And grieve his injured love?


Forbid it, Lord! oh, bind this heart,
This roving heart of mine,
So firm that it may ne’er depart,
In chains of love divine!
