Jesus the Very Thought  of Thee

C              G6     Dm             C
Jesus, the very thought of Thee
C                      D7         G   
With sweetness fills the breast;
       Dm7            Dm         G        G7          
But sweeter far Thy face to see,
C                G7         C
And in Thy presence rest.

Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame,
Nor can the memory find
A sweeter sound than Thy blest name,
O Savior of mankind!

O hope of every contrite heart,
O joy of all the meek,
To those who fall, how kind Thou art!
How good to those who seek!

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.

Jesus, our only joy be Thou,
As Thou our prize will be;
Jesus be Thou our glory now,
And through eternity.

Words: 12th century by Bernard of Clairvaux
Music: St. Agnes 1866 by John Dykes
