Jesus, thy boundless love to me

1. Jesus, Thy boundless love to me
No thought can reach,
no tongue declare;
Unite my thankful heart with Thee
And reign without a rival there.
To Thee alone, dear Lord, I live;
Myself to Thee, dear Lord, I give.

2. From all eternity with love
Unchangeable Thou
hast me viewed;
Ere knew this
beating heart to move,
Thy tender mercies me pursued:
Ever with me Thy love abide,
And close me in on every side.

3. O, grant that nothing
in my soul
May dwell but Thy
pure love alone!
Oh, may Thy love
possess me whole,
My joy, my treasure,
and my crown!
All coldness from
my heart remove;
My every act, word,
thought, be love.

4. O love, how cheering is thy ray!
All pain before thy presence flies;
Care, anguish,
sorrow, melt away
Wherever thy
healing beams arise.
O Jesus, nothing may I see,
Nothing desire
or seek, but Thee!

5. This love unwearied I pursue
And dauntlessly to Thee aspire.
Oh, may Thy love my hope renew
Burn in my soul like heavenly fire!
And day and night be all my care
To guard this sacred
treasure there.

6. My Savior, Thou
Thy love to me
In shame, in want,
in pain, hast showed;
For me, on the accursed tree,
Thou purest forth
Thy guiltless blood;
Thy wounds upon
my heart impress,
Nor aught shall
the loved stamp efface.

7. More hard than marble
is my heart,
And foul with sins
of deepest stain;
But Thou the mighty Savior art,
Nor flowed thy
cleansing blood in vain;
Ah soften, melt
this rock, and may
Thy blood wash
all these stains away!

8. O that I, as a little child,
May follow Thee, and never rest
Till sweetly Thou
hast breathed Thy mild
And lowly mind into my breast!
Nor ever may we parted be,
Till I become as one with Thee.

9. Oh, draw me,
Saviour, e'er to Thee;
So shall I run and never tire.
With gracious words
still comfort me;
Be Thou my Hope,
my sole Desire.
Free me from every guilt and fear;
No sin can harm if Thou art near.

10. O 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 dark, final hour
Of death, be thou
my Guide and Friend,
That I may love thee without end.

11. Still let Thy love point out my war;
How wondrous things
Thy love hath wrought!
Still lead me, lest I go astray;
Direct my word,
inspire my thought;
And if I fall, soon may I hear
Thy voice,
and know that love is near.

12. 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.

**alt verses

Jesus, 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.
