The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Jesu Sweet

Words: English Traditional

 Music: Gustav Holst, Four Songs For Voice and Violin, Op. 35, Number 1

1. Jesu Sweet, now will I sing
To Thee a song of love longing;
Do in my heart a quick well spring
Thee to love above all thing.

2. Jesu Sweet, my dim heart's gleam
Brighter than the sun beam!
As thou wert born in Bethlehem
Make in me thy lovè dream.

3. Jesu Sweet, my dark heart's light
Thou art day withouten night;
Give me strength and eke1 might
For to loven Thee aright.

4. Jesu Sweet, well may he be
That in Thy bliss Thyself shall see:
With love cords then draw Thou me
That I may come and dwell with Thee.
