I love Thee, Jesus

1
I love Thee, Jesus,
And Thy love to me
Draws me, ever to seek Thee
  And run after Thee,
Draws me, ever to seek Thee
  And run after Thee.
    Thou art beloved,
    Yea! Altogether lovely,
    The One in whom my heart delighteth.
2
Thy love, Lord Jesus,
Is sweeter than wine,
And Thy fragrance of ointments
  My heart doth entwine,
And Thy fragrance of ointments
  My heart doth entwine.
    A fount in gardens,
    A well of living waters,
    Which streams and flows from Lebanon’s mountains.
3
O come Beloved,
On my garden blow,
That the odor of spices
  May break forth and flow,
That the odor of spices
  May break forth and flow.
    My spouse, My sister,
    I’m come into My garden
    To feast upon wine, milk and honey.
4
Set me, Lord Jesus,
As seal on Thine heart;
Jealousy’s cruel as Sheol,
  And love’s strong as death,
Jealousy’s cruel as Sheol,
  And love’s strong as death.
    Much water cannot
    Quench love, nor do floods drown it.
    All man could give for love is contemned.
(Repeat the last three lines of each stanza)

Today during the gospel preaching, I suddenly got released from something that tangled my mind a lot before. I wanted to give up but I could not, because the Lord couldn't gain that first place in me for a long time that I didn't have the power to give up. Now His love break me through.

You are altogether lovely.

Set me, Lord Jesus

As seal on Thine heart

Jealousy’s cruel as Sheol

And love’s strong as death

Jealousy’s cruel as Sheol

And love’s strong as death

Much water cannot

Quench love, nor do floods drown it

All man could give for love is contemned.

One instance was, during Monday free time at the training...I went to the mall, opened my account, and inexplicably got so absorbed with the world. I put the earphone, checking my account and playing this song in instrumental..and mysteriously my eyes shed tears and my heart seemed to melt as this started to play. As if my dear Lord gently turned me from my world to Him. I played the song, while tears washed my softened heart..and afterwards I turned and had a fresh sweetness springing within, with renewed joy and earnest for the training. I immediately returned to the training center, realizing what blessing, what love, to be restrained in Him.
