1 JESUS hath died that I might live,
Might live to God alone;
In him eternal life receive,
And be in spirit one.
2 Saviour, I thank thee for the grace,
The gift unspeakable!
And wait with arms of faith to embrace,
And all thy love to feel.
3 My soul breaks out in strong desire
The perfect bliss to prove;
My longing heart is all on fire
To be dissolved in love.
4 Give me thyself; from every boast,
From every wish set free;
Let all I am in thee be lost;
But give thyself to me.
5 Thy gifts, alas, cannot suffice
Unless thyself be given;
Thy presence makes my paradise,
And where thou art is heaven!
