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?
