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

Jesus, My Highest Treasure


Jesus, my highest treasure,
in Thy communion blest
I find unfailing pleasure,
true happiness and rest;
myself a willing off’ring
I give to Thee alone,
because by death and suff’ring
Thou didst for me atone.

O Joy, all joys excelling,
the Bread of Life Thou art,
Thou cam’st to make Thy dwelling
in my unworthy heart.
My spirit’s hungry craving
Thou canst forever still;
from deepest anguish saving,
with bliss my cup canst fill.

O let my eyes be lightened
by sight of Thy dear face;
my life below be brightened
by tasting of Thy grace;
without Thee, mighty Savior,
to live is nought but pain;
to have Thy love and favor
is happiness and gain.

Earth’s glory to inherit
is not what I desire;
to heav’n aspires my spirit,
glowing with nobler fire.
Where Christ Himself appeareth
in brightest majesty,
for me a place prepareth there,
there, there I long to be.

Hymns to the Living God (Religious Affections Ministries, 2017).

I could not find a video of this tune. You can listen here.

The current hymnal for this series is Hymns to the Living God, published by Religious Affections Ministries. This is such a good hymnal that I’m pretty sure I could happily post every hymn it contains, but I’ll be limiting selections to hymns I have never posted here before, especially those unfamiliar to me (of which there are many). For more inf0ormation and to purchase this hymnal, visit Religious Affections Ministries.
