++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Blessed Saviour, Thee I love,

All  my other joys above;

All my hopes in Thee abide,

Thou my Hope, and naught beside;

Ever let my glory be,

Only, only, only Thee.

2.  Once again beside the cross,

All my gain I count but loss;

Earthly pleasures fade away;

Clouds they are that hide my day:

Hence, vain shadows! let me see

Jesus, crucified for me.

3.  From beneath thy thorny crown

Trickle drops of cleansing down;

Pardon from Thy pierced hand

Now I take, while here I stand;

Only then I live to Thee,

When Thy wounded side I see.

4.  Blessed Saviour, Thine am I,

Thine to live, and Thine to die;

Height or depth, or earthly power,

Ne’er shall hide my Saviour more;

Ever shall my glory be,

Only, only, only Thee!
