I know I love Thee bet­ter, Lord
Than any earth­ly joy,
For Thou hast giv­en me the peace
Which no­thing can de­stroy.


The half has ne­ver yet been told,
Of love so full and free;
The half has ne­ver yet been told,
The blood—it cleanseth me.

I know that Thou art nearer still
Than any earth­ly throng.
And sweet­er is the thought of Thee
Than any love­ly song.


Thou hast put glad­ness in my heart;
Then well may I be glad!
Without the sec­ret of Thy love
I could not but be sad.


O Sav­ior, pre­cious Sav­ior mine!
What will Thy pre­sence be
If such a life of joy can crown
Our walk on earth with Thee?
