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.


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.


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.


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.
