    Verse 1
    Jesu, Thou Joy of loving hearts,
    Thou Fount of life, Thou Light of men,
    From the best bliss that earth imparts,
    We turn unfilled to Thee again.

    Verse 2
    Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood;
    Thou savest those that on Thee call;
    To them that seek Thee Thou art good,
    To them that find Thee all in all.

    Verse 3
    We taste Thee, O Thou living Bread,
    And long to feast upon Thee still;
    We drink of Thee, the Fountain-head,
    And thirst our souls from Thee to fill.

    Verse 4
    Our restless spirits yearn for Thee,
    Where'er our changeful lot is cast;
    Glad when Thy gracious smile we see,
    Blest when our faith can hold Thee fast.

    Verse 5
    O Jesus, ever with us stay,
    Make all our moments calm and bright;
    Chase the dark night of sin away,
    Shed o'er the world Thy holy light
