1 O Jesus, delight of my soul,
My Savior, my shepherd divine!
I yield to Thy blessèd control,
My body and spirit are Thine.

2 Thy love I can never deserve,
That bids me be happy in Thee;
My God and my king I will serve,
Whose favor is Heaven to me.

3 How can I Thy goodness repay,
By nature so weak and defiled?
Myself I have given away,
O call me Thine own little child.

4 And art Thou my Father above?
Will Jesus abide in my heart?
O bind me so fast with Thy love,
That I never from Thee depart.
