I give my heart to Thee

1
I give my heart to Thee,
  O Jesus most desired;
And heart for heart the gift shall be,
  For Thou my heart hast fired.
Thou hearts alone wouldst move,
  Thou only hearts dost love;
I would love Thee as Thou lov'st me,
  O Jesus most desired.
2
What off'ring can I make,
  Dear Lord, to love like Thine;
That Thou, the Word, didst stoop to take
  A human form like mine?
"Give Me thy heart, my son":
  Lord, Thou my heart hast won;
I would love Thee as Thou lov'st me,
  O Jesus most desired.
3
Thy heart is opened wide,
  Its offered love most free,
That heart to heart I may abide,
  And hide myself in Thee.
Ah, how Thy love doth burn,
  Till I that love return!
I would love Thee as Thou lov'st me,
  O Jesus most desired.
4
Here finds my heart its rest,
  Repose that knows no shock,
The strength of love that keeps it blest
  In Thee, the riven Rock.
My heart, as girt around,
  Her citadel hath found;
I would love Thee as Thou lov'st me,
  O Jesus most desired.

Ray Palmer (1808-1887) was the son of the honorable Thomas Palmer, a judge in Rhode Island. He was born at Little Compton, Rhode Island on November 12, 1808.

His early life was spent in Boston as a clerk in a dry goods’ store. In Boston he joined the Park Street Congregational Church. He went three years to Andover Academy and graduated from Yale College, New Haven in 1830.

In 1835, he became pastor of the Central Congregational Church at Albany New York and in 1865, he became the Corresponding Secretary to the American Congregational Union, N. Y. He resigned and returned to Newark in 1887.

Most of Palmer’s hymns are considered superior to almost all others of American origin. The first one he wrote “ My Faith Looks up to Thee” has become most widely known and was written fresh out of college.

Palmer’s hymns are brought out of a combination of thought, poetry and devotion

One of the most valuable actions we can make towards the Lord is to allow Him to make his home in our heart. The more we begin to see His person the more we realize that there is no other One like our Precious Lord. He will be what we most desire in our being.
