Jesus Lord, I’m captured by Thy beauty

1
Jesus Lord, I’m captured by Thy beauty,
  All my heart to Thee I open wide;
Now set free from all religious duty,
  Only let me in Thyself abide.
As I’m gazing here upon Thy glory,
  Fill my heart with radiancy divine;
Saturate me, Lord, I now implore Thee,
  Mingle now Thy Spirit, Lord, with mine.
2
Shining One—how clear the sky above me!
  Son of Man, I see Thee on the throne!
Holy One, the flames of God consume me,
  Till my being glows with Thee alone.
Lord, when first I saw Thee in Thy splendor,
  All self-love and glory sank in shame;
Now my heart its love and praises render,
  Tasting all the sweetness of Thy name.
3
Precious Lord, my flask of alabaster
  Gladly now I break in love for Thee;
I anoint Thy head, Beloved Master;
  Lord, behold, I’ve saved the best for Thee.
Dearest Lord, I waste myself upon Thee;
  Loving Thee, I’m deeply satisfied.
Love outpoured from hidden depths within me,
  Costly oil, dear Lord, I would provide.
4
My Beloved, come on spices’ mountain;
  How I yearn to see Thee face to face.
Drink, dear Lord, from my heart’s flowing fountain,
  Till I rest fore’er in Thine embrace.
Not alone, O Lord, do I adore Thee,
  But with all the saints as Thy dear Bride;
Quickly come, our love is waiting for Thee;
  Jesus Lord, Thou wilt be satisfied.

Lord, when first I saw Thee in Thy splendor,

All self-love and glory sank in shame;

Now my heart its love and praises render,

Tasting all the sweetness of Thy name.

Today I was led to this hymn because the Lord so graciously revealed Himself to me as the Son of Man in John 1:47-51. For God's economy which is to build Himself into us God needs His humanity. As the Son of Man the Lord desires to touch our every part. Knowing this is so sweet because in these dark days I need His perfect humanity as my balm.
