    Verse 1
    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.

    Verse 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 flames far from my heart remove;
    May every act, word, thought, be love.

    Verse 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;
    O Jesus, nothing may I see,
    Nothing desire, or seek, but Thee.

    Verse 4
    Unwearied may I this pursue,
    Dauntless to the high prize aspire;
    Hourly within my soul renew
    This holy flame, this heavenly fire;
    And day and night be all my care
    To guard this sacred treasure there.
