Do not I love thee, O my Lord? Behold my heart and see: And turn each cursed idol out, That dares to rival thee. Do not I love thee, O my soul? Then let me nothing love; Dead be my heart to every joy, When Jesus cannot move. Within the darkness of this heart Other gods would vie for my affections But Thou art exalted Thou art exalted Thou art exalted far above all gods! Thou knowest I love thee, dearest Lord, But O, I long to soar Far from the sphere of mortal joys, And learn to love thee more! Amen.
