O Jesus, Jesus, dearest Lord,
forgive me if I say
for very love, thy sacred name
a thousand times a day.

I love thee so, I know not how
my transport to control –
thy love is like a burning fire
within my very soul.

Burn, burn, O Love, within my heart –
burn fiercely night and day
‘til all the dross of earthly care
is burned, and burned away.

O Jesus, Jesus, sweetest Lord –
for thou art that to me –
each hour brings joy before unknown,
each day new liberty.
