“Jesus, my Lord, my God, my all!”
By Henry Collins
 
JESU, my Lord, my God, my all!
Hear me, blest Saviour, when I call;
Hear me, and from Thy dwelling-place
Pour down the riches of Thy grace:
    Jesu, my Lord, I Thee adore,        5
    O make me love Thee more and more.
 
Jesu! alas! too coldly sought,
How can I love Thee as I ought?
And how extol Thy matchless fame,
The glorious beauty of Thy Name?        10
    Jesu, my Lord, I Thee adore,
    O make me love Thee more and more.
 
Jesu! what didst Thou find in me,
That Thou hast dealt so lovingly?
How great the joy that Thou hast brought!        15
So far exceeding hope or thought!
    Jesu, my Lord, I Thee adore,
    O make me love Thee more and more.
 
Jesu! of Thee shall be my song;
To Thee my heart and soul belong;        20
All that I am or have is Thine,
And Thou, my Saviour! Thou art mine.
    Jesu, my Lord, I Thee adore,
    O make me love Thee more and more.
