With All My Heart I Love Thee Lord


With all my heart I love Thee, Lord;
Forsake me not, but still afford
Thy ready help and favor:
The world, its joys delight me not,
Nor earth nor heav’en could be my lot,
Wert Thou not mine forever.
And should my heart with sorrow break,
Thyself my portion I will make,
My trust, my heart’s delight, my all,
Whose blood redeemed me from the fall:
Lord Jesus Christ!
My God and Lord! Thy gracious name
Preserve me from eternal shame.

My body, soul, and all I have
Are Thine, O Lord, to keep and save,
In this our life of sadness:
I pray Thee grant me daily grace,
To use each gift to Thy sole praise,
For other’s good and gladness:
From doctrine false, from error wild,
From Satan’s lies protect Thy child!
My soul with Thy whole strength prepare,
My cross in meekest love to bear:
Lord Jesus Christ!
My God and Lord! Thy gracious name
Preserve me from eternal shame.

My soul let Thine own angels dear,
To Abram’s bosom bear and cheer,
When she her flight is taking:
My body, in its chamber still,
Securely keep from wrong and ill,
Till earth’s last great awaking:
Then raise me, Lord, to be with Thee,
That these mine eyes with joy may see,
O Son of God, Thy glorious face.
My Savior, and my fount of grace!
Lord Jesus Christ,
Thy servant hear! hear, I implore,
That I may praise Thee evermore!
