1 Jesus, Thou Joy of loving hearts!
The Fount of life! The Light of men!
From the best bliss that earth imparts
We turn unfilled to You again.
2 Your truth unchanged has ever stood;
You save all those that on You call;
To them that seek You, You are good,
To them that find you, all in all.
3 We taste You, O Thou living Bread,
And long to feast upon You still;
We drink of You, the Fountainhead,
Our thirst to quench, our souls to fill.
4 Our restless spirits yearn for You,
Where'er our changeful lot is cast:
Glad when Your gracious smile we see,
Blest when our faith can hold You fast.
5 O Jesus, ever with us stay,
Make all our moments calm and bright;
Chase the dark night of sin away,
Shed o'er the world Your holy light.
