|Jesus, thou joy of
thou joy of loving hearts,
fount of life, thou Light of men,
the best bliss that earth imparts
turn unfilled to thee again.
truth unchanged hath ever stood;
savest those that on thee call:
them that seek thee thou art good,
them that find thee, all in all.
taste thee, O thou living Bread,
long to feast upon thee still;
drink of thee, the Fountain-head,
thirst our souls from thee to fill.
restless spirits long for thee,
our changeful lot is cast, -
when thy gracious smile we see,
when our faith can hold thee fast.
Jesus, ever with us stay;
all our moments calm and bright;
the dark night of sin away;
o’er the world thy holy light.
