348 (7.7.7.7.)

Holy Jesus, lovely Lamb,

Thine, and only Thine I am;

Take my body, spirit, soul,

Only Thou possess the whole.

Thou my dearest object be;

Let me ever cleave to Thee;

Let me choose the better part —

Let me give Thee all my heart.

Whom have I on earth below?

Only Thee I wish to know.

Whom have I in heav'n but Thee?

Thou art all in all to me.

All my treasure is above;

My best portion is Thy love;

Who the worth of love can tell,

Infinite, unsearchable?

Nothing else may I require —

Let me Thee alone desire,

Pleased with what Thy love provides,

Weaned from all the world besides.
