O JESUS, my Saviour, in thee I am blessed!

My life, and my treasure, my joy and my rest;

Thy grace is my theme, and thy love is my song,

Thy charms do inspire my heart and my tongue.

All human expression is empty and vain;

Tongue cannot unriddle the heavenly flame;

And sure, if the language of angels I had,

I could not, completely, thy mystery describe.
