Hymn of Praise to Jesus

Hymn of Praise to Jesus

O Jesus, King most wonderful! Thou Conqueror renowned! 
Thou Sweetness most ineffable! In whom all joys are found! 
When once Thou visitest the heart, then truth begins to shine; 
then earthly vanities depart; then kindles love divine. 

O Jesu! Light of all below! Thou Fount of life and fire! 
Surpassing all the joys we know, and all we can desire. 
May every heart confess Thy name, and ever Thee adore; 
And seeking Thee, itself inflame to see Thee more and more. 

Thee may our tongues for ever bless; Thee may we love alone; 
And ever in our lives express the image of Thine own. Amen.
