English.png English text

1. And must I part With all I have,
my dearest lord for thee?
It is but right for thou hast done
much more than this for me.

2. Ten thouSand Worlds, ten thouSand lives,
how Worthless they appear,
compared With thee, Supremely good,
divinely bright and fair.

3. Savior of Souls, could I from thee
a Single Smile obtain,
The loss of all things could I bear
and glory in my gain.
