#66: Jesus, Thou Joy of Loving Hearts

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Jesus, thou Joy of loving hearts,

Thou Fount of life, Thou Light of men,

From the best bliss that earth imparts,

We turn unfilled to Thee again.

2

Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood,

Thou savest those that on The call;

To them that seek Thee, Thou art god,

To them, that find Thee, all in all.

3

We taste The, O Thou living Bread,

And long to feast upon Thee still,

We drink of Thee, The Foundtainhead,

And thirst our souls from Thee to fill.

4

Our restless spirits yearn for Thee,

Where’er our changeful lot is cast;

Glad when Thy gracious smile we see,

Blest when our faith can hold Thee fast.

5

O Jesus, ever with us stay,

Make all our moments calm and bright;

Chase the dark night of sin away,

Shed o’er the world Thy holy Light.
