Jesus Thou joy of loving hearts True source of




Jesus, Thou joy of loving hearts,
True source of life, and light of men:
From the best bliss that earth imparts
We turn unfilled to You again.


Your truth unchanged has ever stood,
You rescue those who on You call;
To those yet seeking, You are good -
To those who find You, all-in-all.


We taste of You, the living bread,
And long to feast upon You still;
We drink from You, the fountain-head,
Our thirsty souls from You we fill.


Our restless spirits long for you,
Whichever way our lot is cast,
Glad when Your gracious smile we view,
Blessed when our faith can hold You fast.


Jesus, forever with us stay,
Make all our moments calm and bright;
Chase the dark night of sin away,
Spread through the world Your holy light.

And thirst our souls from thee to fill.

Where'er our changeful lot is cast:
Glad, when thy gracious smile we see,
Blest, when our faith can hold thee fast.

Make all our moments calm and bright;
Chase the dark night of sin away,
Shed o'er the world thy holy light.
