O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Jesus, The Very Thought Of Thee

Translated by Edward Caswall, 1849 (1814 - 1878)
St. Agnes C. M.
Iesu dulcia memoria
Text from Song of Solomon 1:3, 4

Jesus, the very thought of thee
With sweetness fills my breast;
But sweeter far Thy face to see
And in Thy presence rest.

No voice can sing, nor heart can frame,
Nor can the memory find
A sweeter sound than Thy blest name
O Saviour of mankind!

O Hope of ev'ry contrite heart,
O Joy of all the meek!
To those who ask, how kind Thou art,
How good to those who seek!

But what to those who find? Ah! this
No tongue nor pen can show;
The love of Jesus, what it is,
None but His loved ones know.

Jesus, our only Joy be Thou
As Thou our Prize wilt be!
Jesus, be Thou our Glory now
And through eternity.
