LOVE AND GRATITUDE
326
2 Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame, Nor can the memory find A sweeter sound than Thy blest name, O Saviour of mankind! ^ 0 hope of every contrite heart, O joy of all the meek, To those who fall, 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  Jesus, our only joy be Thou, As Thou our prize wilt be;
Jesus, be Thou our glory now, And through eternity.
Bernard of Clairvaux. Tr. by Rev. Edward Caswall, 1848

2  I see Thee not, I hear Thee not,              4 Yet though I have not seen, and still
Yet art Thou oft with me;                           Must rest in faith alone,
And earth hath ne'er so dear a spot,           I love Thee, dearest Lord, and will,
As where I meet with Thee.                         Unseen, but not unknown.
3  Like some bright dream that comes un-  5 When death these mortal eyes shall seal,
When slumbers o'er me roll, [sought          And still this throbbing heart,
Thine image ever fills my thought,              The rending veil shall Thee reveal,
And charms my ravished soul.                      All-glorious as Thou art.
Rev. Ray Palmer, 1858
