2 When once Thou visitest the heart, Then truth begins to shine, Then earthly vanities depart, Then kindles love Divine.
4 May every heart confess Thy name, And ever Thee adore; And seeking Thee, itself inflame To seek Thee more and more.
3 O Jesus, Light of all below,                         g Thee may our tongues for ever bless;
Thou Fount of life and fire,                            Thee may we love alone;
Surpassing all the joys we know,                   And ever in our lives express
And all we can desire 1                                      The image of Thine own.
Bernard of Clairvaux (roai-1153). Tr. Rev. Edward Caswall, 1849
2  Though raised to a superior throne,
Where angels bow around, And high o'er all the heavenly host, With matchless honor crowned;
3  The names of all His saints He bears
Deep graven on His heart; Nor shall a name once treasured there E'er from His care depart.
4  Those characters shall fair abide,
Our everlasting trust, When gems and monuments and crowns ' Are mouldered down to dust.
5   So, gracious Saviour! on my breast,
May Thy dear name be worn, A sacred ornament and guard, To endless ages borne.
Rev. Philip Doddridge, 1738
