We give our respect to Bernard of Clairvaux (1090 to 1153) who wrote the words. Bernard was a true mystic; his love of Jesus and the devotion to Jesus’ Passion were based on a direct experience of Christ’s love. In 1146, Bernard traveled throughout France and Germany to gather support for the second crusade. Jesus, the very thought of thee,” comes from a Latin text “Dulcis Jesus memoria.” Generally ascribed to Bernard…
- Jesus, the very thought of Thee
With sweetness fills the breast;
But sweeter far Thy face to see,
And in Thy presence rest.
- Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame,
Nor can the mem’ry find
A sweeter sound than Thy blest name,
O Savior of mankind!
- O hope of every contrite heart,
O joy of all the meek,
To those who fall, how kind Thou art!
How good to those who seek!
- All those who find Thee find a bliss
Nor tongue nor pen can show;
The love of Jesus, what it is,
None but His loved ones know.
- Jesus, our only joy be Thou,
As Thou our prize will be;
Jesus, be Thou our glory now,
And through eternity.
