Bernard of Clairvaux (1091-1153), tr. by Edward Caswall, 1849
O hope of every contrite heart,|
O joy of all the meek,
To those who fall, how kind Thou art!
How good to those who seek!
2. But what to those who find?|
Ah this - Nor tongue nor pen can show;
The love of Jesus, what it is
None but His loved ones show.
3. Jesus, our only joy be Thou,|
As Thou our prize will be;
Jesus, be Thou our glory now,
And through eternity.
