I cannot breathe enough of Thee

1
I cannot breathe enough of Thee,
  O gentle breeze of love;
More fragrant than the myrtle tree
The Henna-flower* is to me,
  The Balm of Heaven above.
2
I cannot gaze enough on Thee,
  Thou Fairest of the Fair;
My heart is filled with ecstasy,
As in Thy face of radiancy
  I see such beauty there.
3
I cannot yield enough to Thee,
  My Savior, Master, Friend;
I do not wish to go out free,
But ever, always, willingly,
  To serve Thee to the end.
4
I cannot sing enough of Thee,
  The sweetest name on earth;
A note so full of melody
Comes from my heart so joyously,
  And fills my soul with mirth.
5
I cannot speak enough of Thee,
  I have so much to tell;
Thy heart it beats so tenderly
As Thou dost draw me close to Thee,
  And whisper, “All is well.”
* An Old World plant, prized for its fragrant yellow and white flowers. (Song of Sol. 1:14, A.S.V.)

I cannot sing enough of Thee,

The sweetest name on earth;

Oh Lord Jesus,

I love You.

In 2 Kings 4, a woman’s only son died, and she hurriedly ran to find the prophet Elisha regarding her suffering. As she was approached by others and asked “How she was doing?” she replied, “All is well”. Her focus was not on her pressing environment and great loss, but on God, and the one who spoke the Words of God. In this hymn, the writer sees Christ in His attracting beauty and loveliness, and none else, therefore he can finish the hymn, and say, “All is well”. May we in the hardships that daily confront us, declare “all is well”, as we remain in intimate fellowship and union with our Beloved Christ.

William Spencer Walton, 1906 (I Cannot Breathe Enough of Thee)

When his wife informed him that he was dying of an abdominal infection his response was, "He knows! I'm ready. I've been ready for thirty-four years. Bless His name."
