Jesus, thy boundless love to me I pray

1.JESU, Thy boundless love to me
No thought can reach, no tongue declare;
O knit my thankful heart to Thee,
And reign without a rival there :
Thine wholly, Thine alone, I am,
Be Thou alone my constant flame.

2.O grant that nothing In my soul
May dwell but Thy pure love alone;
O may Thy love possess me whole,
My  Joy, my treasure,and  my crown:
Strange flames far from my heart remove;
My  every act, word, thought, be love.

3.O Love, how cheering is Thy ray;
All pain before Thy presence flies,
Care, anguish, sorrow, melt away,
Where'er   Thy    healing  beams arise :
O Jesu, nothing may I see,
Nothing desire, or seek, but Thee.

4.Unwearied may I this pursue,
Dauntless to the high prize aspire;
Hourly within my soul renew
This holy flame, this heavenly fire;
And day and night be all my care
To guard the sacred treasure there.
