Lyrics

O Jesus, light of all below,
Thou fount of life and fire,
Surpassing all the joys we know,
All that we can desire.

Refrain

O Jesus, king most wonderful,
Wonderful, wonderful,
O Jesus, king most wonderful,
In whom all joys are found.

May every heart confess Thy name,
And ever Thee adore;
And seeking Thee itself inflame,
To seek Thee more and more.

Refrain

Thee may our tongues forever bless;
Thee may we love alone;
And ever in our lives express
The image of Thine own.
