Jesus, Thou Joy of Loving Hearts 100
Bernard of Clairvaux, 1153 Robert Schumann, 1856

1.1. Je sus, thou joy of loving hearts,
Thou Fount of life, thou Light of men,
From the best bliss that earth imparts,
We turn unfilled to thee again,
2.Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood;
Thou savest those that on thee call;
To them that seek thee, thou art good,
To them that find thee, all in all !
3.We taste thee, O thou living Bread,
And long to feast upon thee still;
We drink of thee, the Fountain Head,
And thirst our souls from thee to fill. Amen.
