Dear Lord Jesus, precious Jesus

1
Dear Lord Jesus, precious Jesus,
  Thou hast won each love from me;
Who like Thee—so fair and comely?
  Who like Thee—so sweet and lovely?
Matchless One, unrivaled beauty,
  None can e’er compete with Thee!
2
Dear Lord Jesus, precious Jesus,
  Gladly will I hear Thy call;
Since Thy voice my heart hath entered,
  I from all things could but sever;
Void are all my other seekings,
  Every pride hath disappeared.
3
Dear Lord Jesus, precious Jesus,
  How can I still stubborn be?
At Thy feet cast all my hard’nings,
  And return with songs and singings;
’Tis my love to be Thy bondslave,
  ’Tis my joy to Thee obey.
4
Dear Lord Jesus, precious Jesus,
  Thy way only will I choose;
Though in tears while I’m obeying,
  Yet I would not change my standing;
All I long for is Thy pleasure,
  And the peace Thy love would bring.
5
Dear Lord Jesus, precious Jesus,
  When Thy presence does depart,
Seems the dawn has lost its traces,
  Hidden are my smiling faces;
All I yearn for is Thy coming
  And Thy presence’ sweet embrace.
6
Dear Lord Jesus, precious Jesus,
  Can I tell it all to Thee?
Thou my love and satisfaction,
  Thou my everlasting portion;
Thou art all that I desire,
  Nothing else I would pursue.
7
Dear Lord Jesus, precious Jesus,
  All I have I give to Thee;
Who like Thee—so fair and comely?
  Who like Thee—so sweet and lovely?
Matchless One, unrivaled beauty,
  None can e’er compete with Thee!

To be in tears while obeying, yet still not change in standing is all by the Lord's grace. It is wonderful that despite all the difficulties we encounter, whether because of the flesh or by trial, something still holds us to keep us going on and not give up. The Lord never give us up! We cannot change in standing because He Himself cannot. What a grace!

Void are all my other seekings,

Every pride hath disappeared.

All I long for is Thy pleasure,

And the peace Thy love would bring.

All I yearn for is Thy coming

And Thy presence’ sweet embrace.

Thou art all that I desire,

Nothing else I would pursue.

Matchless One, unrivaled beauty,

None can e’er compete with Thee.

Every time I want to be refreshed in my love toward the Lord I love to sing this song. It reminds me that He is everything to me. He is so sweet and lovely. He's my love and satisfaction and my everlasting portion. Oh Lord Jesus may Your way only will I choose. Capture me oh Lord with Your love. May I gain You more each day Lord. I love You more Lord Jesus.

When I hear this hymn, it reminds me that my love is a "because" love. I love Him because He first loved me. 'Tis the joy to be His bondslave.
