I Would Love Thee God And Father


I would love Thee, God and Father!
My Redeemer, and my King!
I would love Thee; for without Thee
Life is but a bitter thing.

I would love Thee; ev’ry blessing
Flows to me from out Thy throne;
I would love Thee; -he who loves Thee
Never feels himself alone.

I would love Thee; look upon me,
Ever guide me with Thine eye:
I would love Thee; if not nourished
By Thy love, my soul would die.

I would love Thee; I have vowed it;
On Thy love my heart is set;
While I love Thee, I will never
My Redeemer’s blood forget.
