In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: Jesus, Priceless Treasure


Jesus, Priceless Treasure

This precious value, then, is for you who believe 1 Peter 2:7

image

Jesus, priceless treasure,
Source of purest pleasure,
Truest Friend to me:
Long my heart hath panted,
’Til it well-nigh fainted,
Thirsting after Thee.
Thine I am, O spotless Lamb,
I will suffer naught to hide Thee,
Ask for naught beside Thee.

In Thy strength I rest me;
Foes who would molest me
Cannot reach me here.
Though the earth be shaking,
Every heart be quaking,
God dispels our fear.
Sin and hell in conflict fell
With their heaviest storms assail us:
Jesus will not fail us.

Banished is our sadness!
For the Lord of gladness,
Jesus, enters in.
Those who love the Father,
Tho’ the storms may gather,
Still have peace within.
Yea, whate’er we here must bear,
Still in Thee lies purest pleasure,
Jesus, priceless treasure!
