Jesus Hath Died That I Might Live


Jesus hath died that I might live,
Might live to God alone;
In Him eternal life receive,
And be in spirit one.

Saviour, I thank thee for the grace,
The gift unspeakable:
And wait with arms of faith t’embrace,
And all Thy love to feel.

My soul breaks out in strong desire
The perfect bliss to prove;
My longing heart is all on fire
To be dissolved in love.

Give me thyself; from every boast,
From every wish set free;
Let all I am in thee be lost,
But give Thyself to me.

Thy gifts, alas! cannot suffice
Unless Thyself be given;
Thy presence makes my paradise,
And where Thou art is heaven.
