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