Delight [1]

7, 6

Methodist Hymn Book, p. 325

1.

Vain, delusive world, adieu,

With all of creature good;

Only Jesus I pursue,

Who bought me with his blood;

All thy pleasures I forego;

I trample on thy wealth and pride;

Only Jesus will I know,

And Jesus crucified.

2.

Other knowledge I disdain,

'Tis all but vanity;

Christ, the Lamb of God, was slain,

He tasted death for me:

Me to save from endless woe

The sin atoning Victim died;

Only Jesus will I know,

And Jesus crucified.

3.

Here will I set up my rest;

My fluctuating heart

From the haven of his breast

Shall nevermore depart;

Whither should a sinner go?

His wounds for me stand open wide;

Only Jesus will I know,

And Jesus crucified.

4.

Him to know is life and peace,

And pleasure without end;

This is all my happiness,

On Jesus to depend;

Daily in his grace to grow,

And ever in his faith abide;

Only Jesus will I know,

And Jesus crucified.

5.

O that I could all invite,

This saving truth to prove;

Show the length, the breadth, the height,

And depth of Jesus' love!

Fain I would to sinners show

The blood by faith alone applied;

Only Jesus will I know,

And Jesus crucified.
