My Precious Lord For Thy Dear Name
My precious Lord, for thy dear name
I bear the cross, despise the shame;
Nor do I faint, while thou art near;
I lean on thee; how can I fear?
No other name but thine is given
To cheer my soul, in earth or heaven,
No other wealth will I require;
No other friend can I desire.
Yea, into nothing would I fall
For thee alone, my all in all;
To feel thy love, my only joy,
To tell thy love my sole employ.
