Do Not I Love Thee?


1.      Do not I love Thee, O my Lord? Behold my heart and see; and turn each cursed  idol out, that dares to rival Thee.


2.      Do not I love Thee from my soul, then let me ever love, dead be my heart to ev’ry joy, when Jesus cannot move.


3.      Thou know’st I love Thee, but oh, I long to soar far from the sphere of mortal joys, and learn to love Thee more.
