Jesus, the ver-y thought of Thee

D7 G D7 G A7 D
With sweet-ness fills the breast;

Am E7 Am A7 D A7 D D7
But sweet-er far Thy face to see,

G C G D7 G
And in Thy pres-ence rest.
[[Full Lyrics]] [Verse 1] Jesus, the very thought of Thee With sweetness fills the breast; But sweeter far Thy face to see, And in Thy presence rest. [Verse 2] No voice can sing, no heart can frame, Nor can the memory find A sweeter sound than Jesus’ name, The Savior of mankind. [Verse 3] O hope of every contrite heart! O joy of all the meek, To those who fall, how kind thou art! How good to those who seek! [Verse 4] But what to those who find? Ah, this Nor tongue nor pen can show; The love of Jesus, what it is, None but his loved ones know. [Verse 5] Jesus, our only joy be Thou, As Thou our prize wilt be; In Thee be all our glory now, And through eternity.
