1. Do not I love thee, O my Lord?

Then let me nothing love;

Dead be my heart to every joy,

When Jesus cannot move.

2. Is not thy name melodious still

To mine attentive ear?

Doth not each pulse with pleasure pound

My Saviour’s voice to hear?

3. Hast thou a lamb in all thy flock

I would disdain to feed?

Hast thou a foe, before whose face

I fear thy cause to plead?

4. Would not mine ardent spirit vie

With angels round the throne,

To execute thy sacred will,

And make thy glory known?

5. Thou know’st I love thee, dearest Lord,

But O, I long to soar

Far from the sphere of mortal joys,

And learn to love thee more!
