1358. Eternal Source of Joys Divine

1. Eternal source of joys divine,
To Thee my soul aspires;
O could I say, The Lord is mine,
’Tis all my soul desires.

2. My hope, my trust, my life, my Lord,
Assure me of Thy love;
O speak the kind, transporting word,
And bid my fears remove.

3. Then shall my thankfulness rejoice,
And triumph in my God,
Till heav’nly rapture tune my voice,
To spread Thy praise abroad.
