Hymn of the Week: With All My Heart

My new hymn this week is a musical response to Jesus' teaching on the Greatest Commandment: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength." It's set to the tune of the old Philip Doddridge hymn "Hark, the Glad Sound!"

With All My Heart

With all my heart I love you, Lord,
With everything in me--
The deepest wells of my desire
Are yours eternally.

With all my soul I love you, Lord,
With everything in me--
My spirit looks in awe upon
Your love's infinity.

With all my mind I love you, Lord,
With everything in me--
May every choice and every thought
Bring glory unto Thee.

With all my strength I love you, Lord,
With everything in me--
For only by your mighty grace
Do I find liberty.

I love you, oh, I love you, Lord,
Thou source of all my love--
Be magnified in all I am,
In this life and above!
