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.
