2 O grant that nothing in my soul

May dwell but thy pure love alono !
O may thy love poffefs me whole!
My joy, my treasure, and my crown;
Strange Aames far from my heart remove;

My ev'ry act, word, thought, be love. ! 3 O love, how cheering is thy ray!

All pain before thy presence flies ; Care, anguish, sorrow, melt away,

Where'er thy healing beams arise : o Jeru, nothing may I see, . Nothing defire or seek but thee! 4. Unweary'd may I this pursue,

Dauntless to the high prize aspire :
Hourly within my soul renew

This holy Aame, this heav'nly fire;
And day and night be all my care

To guard this sacred treasure there. so that I, as a little child,

May follow thee, and never rest,
Till sweetly thou hast breath'd thy mild

And lowly mind into my breast !
Nor ever may we parted be,

Till I become one sp/it with thee. 6 Still let thy love point out my way:

How wond'rous things thy love hath wrought;
Still lead me, left I go astray;

Direct my word, inspire my thought :
And, if I fall, foon may I hear
Thy voice, and know that love is near.
In fuff'ring be thy love my peace,

In weakness be thy love my pow'r;
And when the storms of life thall cease,

Jesu, in that important hour,
In death, as life, be thou my guide,
And save me, who for me halt dy'd! .
