Hymn: TLH 399, st. 3,5,6 :
Thee Will I Love, my Strength
3. I thank Thee, Jesus, Sun from heaven,
Whose radiance hath bro’t light to me;
I thank Thee, who hast richly given
All that could make me glad and free;
I thank Thee that my soul is healed
By what Thy lips revealed.
5. Oh, teach me, Lord, to love Thee truly
With soul and body, head and heart,
And grant me grace that I may duly
Practice fore’er love’s sacred art.
Grant that my every thought may be
Directed e’er to Thee.
6. Thee will I love, my Crown of gladness;
Thee will I love, my God and Lord,
Amid the darkest depths of sadness,
Not for the hope of high reward–
For Thine own sake, O Light Divine,
So long as life is mine.
