HYMN CXCI.

10.10.10.10

James Montgomery

"Lovest thou Me?--John, xxi. 15-17.

"Lovest thou Me?" I hear my Saviour say;

Would that my heart had power to answer "Yea,"

Thou knowest all things, Lord, in heaven above,

And earth beneath; Thou knowest that I love."

But 'tis not so; in word, in deed, in thought,

I do not, cannot love Thee as I ought;

Thy love must give that power, Thy love alone;

There's nothing worthy of Thee but Thine own.

Lord, with the love wherewith Thou lovest me,

Reflected on Thyself, I would love Thee;

Thence on my brethren shed, might it be seen

By all around, that I with Thee had been.
