Scripture: Ephesians 3:17-19
Theme: Life in Christ

1.  Jesus, Thy boundless love to me
    No thought can reach, no tongue declare;
    O knit my thankful heart to Thee,
    And reign without a rival there!
    Thine wholly, Thine alone, I'd live,
    Myself to Thee entirely give.

2.  O grant that nothing in my soul
    May dwell, but Thy pure love alone;
    O may Thy love possess me whole,
    My joy, my treasure, and my crown!
    All coldness from my heart remove;
    May every act, word, thought be love.

3.  O Love, how gracious is Thy way!
    All fear before Thy presence flies;
    Care, anguish, sorrow melt away,
    Where'er Thy healing beams arise.
    O Jesus, nothing may I see,
    Nothing desire, or seek, but Thee.
