The Prayer, O Jesus, Thou the Beauty Art

Oh Jesus, Thou the beauty art Of Angel worlds above! Thy Name is music to the heart, Enchanting it with love!

Celestial sweetness unalloyed! Who eat Thee hunger still, Who drink of Thee still feel a void Which naught but Thou can fill!

Oh my sweet Jesus! hear the sighs Which unto Thee I send! To Thee my inmost spirit cries, My being's hope and end!

Stay with us, Lord, and with Thy light Illume the soul's abyss; Scatter the darkness of our night And fill the world with bliss.

Oh Jesu! spotless Virgin flower! Our life and joy! to Thee Be praise, beatitude and power, Through all eternity!
