Lyrics

Oh, to love Thee, precious Jesus,
Oh, to know that Thou art mine;
All my heart I give Thee, Jesus,
If Thou wilt but make it Thine.

Refrain

Precious Jesus, precious Jesus,
Thou art all the world to me;
All of earth and all of Heaven,
All I need I find in Thee.

Take my warmest, best affections;
Take my memory, mind and will;
Then with all Thy loving spirit
All my emptied nature fill.

Refrain

Oh, how precious, dear Redeemer,
Is the love that fills my soul!
It is done! The word is spoken!
Be thou every whit made whole!
