Jesus, the very thought of you

Jesus, the very thought of you
makes every moment blessed;
but sweeter far your face to view
and in your presence rest.

2. No ear can hear, no voice proclaim,
nor can the heart recall
a sweeter sound than Jesus’ name,
the Saviour of us all.

3. Hope of each contrite, humble mind,
joy of the poor and meek;
to those who falter, O how kind,
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, be all our joy below,
as you our prize will be;
Jesus, be all our glory now
and through eternity.
