Scripture: Psalm 16:11
1 Jesus, priceless treasure,
Source of purest pleasure, Truest friend to me;
Long my heart hath panted,
Till it well nigh fainted, Thirsting after thee.
Thine I am, O spotless Lamb,
I will suffer nought to hide thee, Ask for nought beside thee.
2 In thine arm I rest me:
Foes who would molest me Cannot reach me here.
Though the earth be shaking,
Every heart be quaking, God dispells our fear;
Sin and hell in conflict fell
With their heaviest storms assail us; Jesus will not fail us.
3 Hence, all thoughts of sadness!
For the Lord of gladness, Jesus, enters in;
Those who love the Father,
Though the storms may gather, Still have peace within;
Yea, whate'er we here must bear,
Still in thee lies purest pleasure, Jesus, priceless treasure.
