Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art

1
Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art,
Thou hast fully captured my heart;
None compares with Thee, none on earth or heav'n,
God yet man, most beautiful One!
How I longed to vanish in Thee
When Thy tender voice came to me.
All past loves forsaking most joyfully,
I'd just love Thee — wholeheartedly.
  Who in all the world is as fair as Thee?
Or who else can love so romantic'ly?
Oh, most holy One, now You live in me!
Jesus Lord, I deeply love Thee!
No more trusting self, nor deceived I'd be;
I'd put off my self, just be filled with Thee;
Oh, let all apart from Thee fade and flee;
My one love, my best love, is Thee.
2
Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art;
I was once rebellious and hard,
But I drop it all now to come to Thee,
Self forsake, that like Thee I'd be.
When I live, be it Thou, I pray,
Not self's will, but God's I'd obey;
To Thine heart attuned, Thy delight I'd seek;
No more struggling, fully at peace.
3
Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art;
We two never, ever will part;
Thy dear presence is all my breath and might;
Thy dear smile is all my delight.
I would pour my heart out to Thee,
Love Thee, serve Thee, joined utterly;
My eternal portion, dear Lord, is Thee;
My one hope, Thy coming to see.

There is none in heav’n nor on earth like Thee,

With Thy beauty none can compete.

Lord my prayer is that YOU would recover my first love. I know that YOU lack nothing. I pray for YOUR grace and mercy to touch and heal me. Grace that would cleanse and saturate me until it bears a bunch of consecration. Make me worthy again, LORD! I will be glad LORD to feel the warmth of YOUR deep embrace. I will be in joy to feel that I still belong and that it is not yet too late to go back home. I love YOU so much, LORD JESUS! I owe my life to YOU! LORD JESUS, I just love YOU! #FTTMaAUG2017
