Cosmos, Hollyhocks Jesus only, mid the turmoil and Love divine, all love excelling

Jesus only, mid the turmoil
Of life’s weary warfare now;
Jesus only, when the deathdew
Gathers damp upon my brow.

Jesus only; let earth vanish,
Take away its worthless store;
I have found a truer treasure,
Jesus only, nothing more.

Jesus only, none but Jesus,
When the great white throne I see,
And the judgment books are opened;
Jesus only, then, for me.

Jesus only, Jesus ever,
Here is strength for ev’ry day;
He’s a Friend that faileth never,
His is love that lasts for aye.

      M. Fraser

Love divine, all love excelling,
Joy of heav’n, to earth come down!
Fix in us thy humble dwelling;
All thy faithful mercies crown.
Jesus, thou art all compassion,
Pure unbounded love thou art;
Visit us with thy salvation;
Enter ev’ry trembling heart.

Breathe, O breathe thy loving Spirit
Into ev’ry troubled breast!
Let us all in thee inherit,
Let us find that second rest.
Take away our bent to sinning;
Alpha and Omega be;
End of faith, as its beginning,
Set our hearts at liberty.

Come, almighty to deliver,
Let us all thy life receive;
Suddenly return, and never,
Never more thy temples leave;
Thee we would be always blessing,
Serve thee as thy hosts above,
Pray, and praise thee without ceasing,
Glory in thy perfect love.

Finish then thy new creation;
Pure and spotless let us be;
Let us see thy great salvation,
Perfectly restored in thee:
Changed from glory into glory,
Till in heav’n we take our place,
Till we cast our crowns before thee:
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.

Chas. Wesley
