The Hymn.
ESU, the very thought of Thee
But sweeter far Thy Face to see,

And in Thy Presence rest.
No voice can sing, no heart can frame,

Nor can the memory find
A sweeter sound than Jesu's Name,

The Saviour of mankind.
O hope of every contrite heart,

0 Joy of all the meek, To those who ask how kind Thou art,

How good to those who seek! But what to those who find ? Ah! this

Nor tongue nor pen can shew; The love of Jesus, what it is

None but His loved ones know. Jesu, our only Joy be Thou,

As Thou our Prize wilt be: In Thee be all our glory now,

And through eternity. Amen.

To which may be added, The eyes of all wait upon Thee, O Lord. Answer. And Thou givest them their

meat in due season. Thou openest Thine hand. Answer. And fillest all things living

with plenteousness.
