Sweeter than honey's sweetness
Is the full divine completeness
Of my Saviour's love.
Dearer far than earthly treasure
Is the joy that knows no measure, —
Heavenly joy above.
Closer to my soul and nearer,
More beloved by far and dearer
Is my Lord to me,
Than earth's fame so
vain and fleeting,
Or the friends who give me greeting
On life's stormy sea.
Purer thant he lily's whiteness,
Clearer than the noneday brighteness,—
Jesus, Saviour, mine.
Come, O come in all thy beauty,
Let thy love make every duty
With thy glory shine.
