Hymn 111 - "`Tis the truest joy and blessing"


`Tis the truest joy and blessing

Jesus as our Lord to know,

Here to yield Him full allegiance,

Follow in His steps below.



With a perfect love He loves us,

Nought its ceaseless flow can stay;

For His pleasure He has bought us,

He Himself is ours for aye.



Never shall His love so faithful,

Of our needs forgetful be:

`Tis a source that never faileth,

Inexhaustible and free.



If He claims our hearts' affections

Unreserved as His own,

'Tis because of love unchanging,

That in Him was first made known.
