Something every heart is loving

1
Something every heart is loving:
  If not Jesus, none can rest;
Lord, my heart to Thee is given;
  Take it, for it loves Thee best.
2
Thus I cast the world behind me;
  Jesus most beloved shall be;
Beauteous more than all things beauteous,
  He alone is joy to me.
3
Bright with all eternal radiance
  Is the glory of Thy face;
Thou art loving, sweet, and tender,
  Full of pity, full of grace.
4
When I hated, Thou didst love me,
  Shedd’st for me Thy precious blood;
Still Thou lovest, lovest ever,
  Shall I not love Thee, my God?
5
Keep my heart still faithful to Thee,
  That my earthly life may be
But a shadow to that glory
  Of my hidden life in Thee.

I have enjoyed singing this hymn often these days in particular during this pandemic. Three tremendous points reverberate in my spirit each time I consider the lines: “He alone is a joy to me. ” Jesus the lovely Person, is the only real true joy in this whole universe. “Is the glory of Thy face. ” There is nothing brighter, nothing more attractive or precious than the face of Jesus Christ. “Of my hidden life in Thee” Our existence and our real life is hidden with Christ in God. Amen

Keep my heart still faithful to Thee,

That my earthly life may be

But a shadow to that glory

Of my hidden life in Thee.
