242 ~ Jesus, Thou Joy of Loving Hearts



1

Jesus, Thou joy of loving hearts!
Thou fount of life! Thou light of men!
From the best bliss that earth imparts,
We turn unfilled to Thee again.


2

Thy truth unchanged has ever stood;
Thou savest those that on Thee call;
To them that seek Thee Thou art good,
To them that find Thee, all in all.


3

We taste Thee, O Thou living Bread,
And long to feast upon Thee still;
We drink of Thee, the Fountainhead,
And thirst our souls from Thee to fill!


4

Our restless spirits yearn for Thee,
Wheree'er our changeful lot is cast;
Glad, when Thy gracious smile we see,
Blest, when our faith can hold Thee fast.


5

O Jesus, ever with us stay;
Make all our moments calm and bright;
Chase the dark night of sin a way,
Shed o'er the world Thy holy light!
