1 JESUS, the all-restoring Word,
My fallen spirit's hope,
After thy lovely likeness, Lord,
Ah, when shall I wake up?
2 Thou, O my God, thou only art
The Life, the Truth, the Way;
Quicken my soul, instruct my heart.
My sinking, footsteps stay.
3 Of all thou hast in earth below,
In heaven above, to give,
Give me thy only love to know.
In thee to walk and live.
4 Fill me with all the life of love;
In mystic union join
Me to thyself, and let me prove
The fellowship divine.
5 Open the intercourse between
My longing soul and thee,
Never to be broke off again
To all eternity.
