 more love to Thee

More love to Thee, O Christ, more love to Thee!
Hear Thou the prayer I make on bended knee.
This is my earnest plea: More love, O Christ, to Thee;
More love to Thee, more love to Thee!

Once earthly joy I craved, sought peace and rest;
Now Thee alone I seek, give what is best.
This all my prayer shall be: More love, O Christ to Thee;
More love to Thee, more love to Thee!

Let sorrow do its work, come grief or pain;
Sweet are Thy messengers, sweet their refrain,
When they can sing with me: More love, O Christ, to Thee;
More love to Thee, more love to Thee!

Then shall my latest breath whisper Thy praise;
This be the parting cry my heart shall raise;
This still its prayer shall be: More love, O Christ to Thee;
More love to Thee, more love to Thee!

 Re: more love to Thee

This brought to mind another lovely hymn:

My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine,
For Thee all the pleasures of sin I resign,
My Gracious Redeemer, my Saviour art Thou,
If ever I love Thee, my Jesus 'tis now.

It's so wonderful that as we dwell more and more on our Saviour's amazing love for us, our love for Him grows and all else fades away...
Thanks for this post!
