SATB Choir. Lush harmonies and sumptuous vocal lines highlight this text. Perfect as a communion anthem anytime of year.
O Jesus, joy of loving hearts,
the fount of life, and our true light,
we seek the peace thy love imparts
and stand rejoicing in thy sight.
We taste thee, thou living Bread,
and long to feast upon thee still;
we drink of thee, the fountainhead,
our thirsting souls to quench and fill.
For thee, our restless spirits yearn
where'er our changing lot is cast;
glad when thy gracious smile we see,
blest when our faith can hold thee fast.
O Jesus, ever with us stay;
make all our moments calm and bright;
And chase the darkest night of sin away;
shed o'er the world thy holy light!
