Jesu The Very Thought Of Thee : Lyrics
1. Jesu, the very thought of Thee
With sweetness fills the breast;
But sweeter far Thy Face to see,
And in Thy presence rest.
2. No voice can sing, no heart can frame,
Nor can the memory find,
A sweeter sound than Jesu’s Name,
The Saviour of mankind.
3. O hope of every contrite heart,
O joy of all the meek,
To those who ask how kind Thou art,
How good to those who seek!
4. But what to those who find? Ah! this
Nor tongue nor pen can show;
The love of Jesus, what it is
None but His loved ones know.
5. Jesu, our only joy be Thou,
As Thou our prize wilt be:
In Thee be all our glory now,
And through eternity.
- Lyrics from Saint Bernard of Clairvaux (1091 – 1153), translated by Edward Caswall (1814 – 1878). Public Domain.
