LOVE AND GRATITUDE
328
r
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 fires far from my soul 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. 0 Jesus, nothing may I see, Or hear, or feel, or think, but Thee.
4  Still let Thy love point out my way; I How wondrous things Thy love hat«
Still lead me, lest I go astray; [wroughdfl Direct my work, inspire my thought; And if I fall, soon may I hear Thy voice, and know that love is near.
5  In suffering, be Thy love my peace; In weakness, be Thy love my power; ■
And when the storms of life shall cease,
Jesus, in that important hour, In death, as life, be Thou my guide, And save me, Who for me hast died.
