Hymn : TLH 347 st. 1,4: Jesus, Priceless Treasure Hymnary.org link

1. Jesus, priceless Treasure, 
Fount of purest pleasure, 
Truest Friend to me. 
Ah, how long in anguish 
Shall my spirit languish, 
Yearning, Lord, for Thee? 
Thou art mine, O Lamb divine! 
I will suffer naught to hide Thee, 
Naught I ask beside Thee. 

4. Hence, all earthly treasure! 
Jesus is my Pleasure, 
Jesus is my Choice. 
Hence, all empty glory! 
Naught to me thy story 
Told with tempting voice. 
Pain or loss, Or shame or cross, 
Shall not from my Savior move me 
Since He deigns to love me.
