ELECT PRECIOUS




Jesus, I love Thy charming Name,
íTis music to mine ear;
Fain would I sound it out so loud
That earth and Heaven should hear.


Yes, Thou art precious to my soul,
My Transport and my Trust;
Jewels to Thee are gaudy toys,
And gold is sordid dust.


All my capacious powers can wish
In Thee doth richly meet;
Not to mine eyes is light so dear,
Nor friendship half so sweet.


Thy grace still dwells upon my heart,
And sheds its fragrance there;
The noblest balm of all my wounds,
The cordial of my care.


I'll speak the honours of thy name
With my last labouring breath;
The speechless, clasp thee in mine arms,
The Conqueror of death.


---Alternative verses---


Jesus, I love Thy charming Name,
íTis music to my ear;
Fain would I sound it out so loud
That earth and Heaven should hear.


All that my loftiest powers can wish
In Thee doth richly meet;
Not to mine eyes is light so dear,
Nor friendship half so sweet.


Whate'er my noblest powers can wish
In Thee doth richly meet;
Not to mine eyes is light so dear,
Nor friendship half so sweet.


Thy grace still dwells upon my heart,
And sheds its fragrance there;
The noblest balm of all its wounds,
The cordial of its care.


I'll speak the honours of thy name
With my last laboring breath;
Then speechless clasp thee in my arms,
The antidote of death.


I'll speak the honours of thy name
With my last laboring breath;
And, speechless, clasp thee in my arms,
And trust thy love in death.


I'll speak the honours of thy name
With my last laboring breath;
And, dying, clasp thee in my arms,
The antidote of death.
