301 (L.M.)

Jesus is all I wish or want;

For Him I pray, for Him I pant;

Let others after earth aspire,

Christ is the treasure I desire.

Possessed of Him, I ask no more;

He is an all-sufficient store;

To praise Him all my powers conspire —

Christ is the treasure I desire.

If He His smiling face but hide,

My soul no comfort has beside;

Distressed I after Him inquire —

Christ is the treasure I desire.

And while my heart is racked with pain,

Jesus appears and smiles again.

Why should my Saviour thus retire?

Christ is the treasure I desire.

Come, humble souls, and view His charms,

Take refuge in His saving arms,

And sing, while you his worth admire,

"Christ is the Saviour I desire."
