231. Love of Jesus, all divine

Eight 7's

Edmund:

John Bacchus Dykes (1823-1876)

Francis Bottome, 1872

Love of Jesus, all divine,

Fill this longing heart of mine:

Ceaseless struggling after life,

Weary with the endless strife.

Savior, Jesus, lend thine aid,

Lift thou up my fainting head;

Lead me to my long-sought rest,

Pillowed on thy loving breast.

Thou alone my trust shalt be,

Thou alone canst comfort me;

Only, Jesus, let thy grace

Be my shield and hiding-place;

Let me know thy saving power

In temptation's fiercest hour:

Then, my Savior, at thy side

Let me evermore abide.

Thou hast wrought this fond desire,

Kindled here this sacred fire,

Weaned my heart from all below,

Thee and thee alone to know.

Thou who hast inspired the cry,

Thou alone canst satisfy:

Love of Jesus, all divine,

Fill this longing heart of mine.

Amen.
