Redeemed Hymn 61 – Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee

“My meditation of Him shall be sweet”-Ps 104:34

1 Jesus, the very thought of Thee

With sweetness fills my breast;

But sweeter far Thy face to see,

And in thy presence rest.

2 Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame

Nor can the memory find

A sweeter sound than thy blest name,

O savior of mankind.

3 O Hope of every contrite heart,

O joy of all the meek

To those who fall, how kind Thou art!

How good to those who seek!

4 But what to those who find? Ah, this

Nor tongue nor pen can show;

The love of Jesus, what it is,

None but His loved ones know.

5 Jesus, our only joy be Thou,

As thou our prize wilt be;

Jesus, be thou our glory now,

And through eternity.
