I love Thee, I love Thee, I love Thee, my Lord;

I love Thee, my Savior, I love Thee, my God;

I love Thee, I love Thee, and that Thou dost know;

But how much I love Thee my actions will show.

I'm happy, I'm happy, O wondrous account!

My joys are immortal, I stand on the mount;

I gaze on my treasure and long to be there,

With Jesus and angels and kindred so dear.

O who's like my Savior?  He's Salem's bright King;

He smiles and He loves me and helps me to sing;

I'll praise Him, I'll praise Him with notes loud and clear,

While rivers of pleasure my spirit shall cheer.

O Jesus my Savior, with Thee I am blest,

My life and salvation, my joy and my rest;

Thy name be my theme, and Thy love be my song;

Thy grace shall inspire both my heart and my tongue.
