Jesus, Priceless Treasure
Hymn lyrics and .mp3 Download
1. Jesus, priceless treasure, source of purest pleasure, truest friend to me, long my heart hath panted, till it well-nigh fainted, thirsting after thee. Thine I am, O spotless Lamb, I will suffer naught to hide thee, ask for naught beside thee.
2. In thine arms I rest me; foes who would molest me cannot reach me here. Though the earth be shaking, every heart be quaking, Jesus calms our fear; sin and hell in conflict fell with their heaviest storms assail us; Jesus will not fail us.
3. Hence, all thoughts of sadness! For the Lord of gladness, Jesus, enters in. Those who love the Father, through the storms may gather, still have peace within; yea, whate'er we here must bear, still in thee lies purest pleasure, Jesus, priceless treasure!
