Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art

1
Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art,
Thou hast fully captured my heart;
None compares with Thee, none on earth or heav’n,
God yet man, most beautiful One!
How I longed to vanish in Thee
When Thy tender voice came to me.
All past loves forsaking most joyfully,
I’d just love Thee — wholeheartedly.
  Who in all the world is as fair as Thee?
Or who else can love so romantic’ly?
Oh, most holy One, now You live in me!
Jesus Lord, I deeply love Thee!
No more trusting self, nor deceived I’d be;
I’d put off my self, just be filled with Thee;
Oh, let all apart from Thee fade and flee;
My one love, my best love, is Thee.
2
Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art;
I was once rebellious and hard,
But I drop it all now to come to Thee,
Self forsake, that like Thee I’d be.
When I live, be it Thou, I pray,
Not self’s will, but God’s I’d obey;
To Thine heart attuned, Thy delight I’d seek;
No more struggling, fully at peace.
3
Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art;
We two never, ever will part;
Thy dear presence is all my breath and might;
Thy dear smile is all my delight.
I would pour my heart out to Thee,
Love Thee, serve Thee, joined utterly;
My eternal portion, dear Lord, is Thee;
My one hope, Thy coming to see.

1 Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art,

Thou hast fully captured my heart;

There is none in heav’n nor on earth like Thee,

With thy beauty none can compete

When Thy voice first came to my ear,

Whisp’ring in my heart words most dear,

All past loves and aims lost their charm for me,

All my boasts so vain now appear.

Throughout all the world, who compares with Thee?

Who so full of worth, who so fair and sweet?

Only Thou art worthy my love to win,

Oh Lord Jesus , How I love Thee!

No more I who live, no more self-deceived,

No more in the self’s, world indulged to be,

Deep within I know you’re my only love,

My best love in none else but Thee!

2 Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art,

Rid all rocks that hide in my heart;

Gladly I Thy bondslave of love would be,

One heart, one will ever with Thee

Though my heart is oft not subdued, ,

Still Thy way alone it would choose;

All I yearn for is what Thy heart desires,

In Thy love alone peace I find.

Throughout all the world, who compares with Thee?

Who so full of worth, who so fair and sweet?

Only Thou art worthy my love to win,

Oh Lord Jesus , How I love Thee!

No more I who live, no more self-deceived,

No more in the self’s, world indulged to be,

Deep within I know you’re my only love,

My best love in none else but Thee!

3 Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art;

Ne’er again from Thee I’d depart;

Never hide Thy dear, smiling face from me.

To none else I’d cling Lord, but Thee.

To Thee, Lord, my all I outpour,

How Thy love my heart deeply fills,

My eternal portion, mosr precious Lord,

None but Thee I want evermore.

Throughout all the world, who compares with Thee?

Who so full of worth, who so fair and sweet?

Only Thou art worthy my love to win,

Oh Lord Jesus , How I love Thee!

No more I who live, no more self-deceived,

No more in the self’s, world indulged to be,

* Deep within I know you’re my only love,

My best love in none else but Thee!

The new words to this song are quite profound. It expresses another aspect of experiencing Christ. Lord Jesus, capture our heart.

The original words truly captured another avenue of experiencing Christ. Oh how my spirit would flow singing those words. Yes, please keep the original song available also for us to enjoy on Hymnal. net.

This is sweet. But I miss the original version—there’s something particularly special and deep in it that always moves me. I hope you can still keep the original song for us to enjoy in the LORD. Thank you!
