Jesus Lord, I’m captured by Thy beauty

1
Jesus Lord, I’m captured by Thy beauty,
  All my heart to Thee I open wide;
Now set free from all religious duty,
  Only let me in Thyself abide.
As I’m gazing here upon Thy glory,
  Fill my heart with radiancy divine;
Saturate me, Lord, I now implore Thee,
  Mingle now Thy Spirit, Lord, with mine.
2
Shining One—how clear the sky above me!
  Son of Man, I see Thee on the throne!
Holy One, the flames of God consume me,
  Till my being glows with Thee alone.
Lord, when first I saw Thee in Thy splendor,
  All self-love and glory sank in shame;
Now my heart its love and praises render,
  Tasting all the sweetness of Thy name.
3
Precious Lord, my flask of alabaster
  Gladly now I break in love for Thee;
I anoint Thy head, Beloved Master;
  Lord, behold, I’ve saved the best for Thee.
Dearest Lord, I waste myself upon Thee;
  Loving Thee, I’m deeply satisfied.
Love outpoured from hidden depths within me,
  Costly oil, dear Lord, I would provide.
4
My Beloved, come on spices’ mountain;
  How I yearn to see Thee face to face.
Drink, dear Lord, from my heart’s flowing fountain,
  Till I rest fore’er in Thine embrace.
Not alone, O Lord, do I adore Thee,
  But with all the saints as Thy dear Bride;
Quickly come, our love is waiting for Thee;
  Jesus Lord, Thou wilt be satisfied.

Lord Jesus, dearest Lord how we yearn for more of Thee. We refuse to have nothing else but You. Lord we want to come back to our first love. Oh Lord Jesus save us moment by moment. We refuse to go back. We never go back to Babylon. O Lord we want to have a more subjective experience of You. The pathway may be drear but Lord we accept and move on only through You. Lord Jesus we cry out to You because we need You. You give us the radiancy to shine. You empower us to live a normal life. We are not alone, we have the Body, the saints, our dear brothers and sisters. Lord Jesus we yearn to see Thee face to face. We recognize our offering is not adequate, but Lord accept our offering.

Precious Lord, my flask of alabaster

Gladly now I break in love for Thee;

I anoint Thy head, Beloved Master;

Lord, behold, I’ve saved the best for Thee.

Dearest Lord, I waste myself upon Thee;

Loving Thee, I’m deeply satisfied.

Love outpoured from hidden depths within me,

Costly oil, dear Lord, I would provide.

Why is it that I every time Icry when I sing this verse....I see the woman of the Bible with the costly oil in her hands who saved the best for her master....O Lord Jesus, may I also be like this woman, please Lord...Loving Lord, I'm deeply satisfied.

I'm 13 and I really enjoy this song because it really gets me thinking about how I'm so captured by God's beauty. I love God so much and I really hope more people come to God and be saved because in the end we will be in the New Jerusalem. God I love You!!!

Hallelujah for such a hymn! Christ is so precious that we'd pour everything to anoint Him and we're breaking our flasks of alabasters, love from hidden depths within us are outpoured to the Lord. Loving Thee, I'm deeply satisfied!

If ever anything in this whole world becomes too difficult for you, SING THIS SONG! POUR it out on the head to our Master as costly oil...He will be satisfied (and you also).

If you mean every word while you sing this prayer, then you can't be the same person after the last verse...the pauses in between is just enough to lift up your eyes an to look into Jesus' eyes...O THIS song is written for ME to enjoy and I would like to share it with all my brothers and sisters...What is there in life that is SO special and So valuable to you? Bring it in your alabater flask and break the flask and anoint the Head of our master with the oil in it...He'll be satisfied! Be assured!

What a wonderful prayer to sing...

This hymn shows how the beginning of love in us toward the Lord is a vision of His wonderful person. I especially enjoy the part in stanza 2 that says, "Lord when first I saw Thee in Thy splendor...Now my heart its love and praises render." It's only by seeing the excellency of Christ that we can love Him, even with the best love.

I sing now every morning...I think it is WINDOWS. I have an old computur and really there is no way how I can stop the previous song but "to embed" the song and then I type another new song in. Can you perhaps introduce a way how you can stop the music, otherwise it just go on and on. I enjoy it out of my heart.

It has the key qualities in a beautiful hymn. Beautiful message, beautiful melody. Extremely well-written.
