136 (L.M.) Anne Steele

Jesus, the spring of joys divine

Whence all our hopes and comforts flow —

Jesus, no other name but Thine

Can save us from eternal woe.

In vain would boasting reason find

The way to happiness and God;

Her weak directions leave the mind

Bewildered in a dubious road.

No other name will heav'n approve;

Thou art the true, the living way,

Ordained by everlasting love,

To the bright realms of endless day.

Here let our constant feet abide,

Nor from the heav'nly path depart:

Oh, let Thy Spirit, gracious Guide,

Direct our steps, and cheer our heart.

Safe lead us through this world of night,

And bring us to the blissful plains,

The regions of unclouded light,

Where perfect joy forever reigns.
