Russian-speaking saints singing “Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art”. – via Наталья Полозова
1. Jesus Lord, my best love Thou art,
Thou hast fully captured my heart;
None compares with Thee, none on earth or heav’n,
God yet man, most beautiful One!
How I longed to vanish in Thee
When Thy tender voice came to me.
All past loves forsaking most joyfully,
I’d just love Thee — wholeheartedly.
Who in all the world is as fair as Thee?
Or who else can love so romantic’ly?
Oh, most holy One, now You live in me!
Jesus Lord, I deeply love Thee!
No more trusting self, nor deceived I’d be;
I’d put off my self, just be filled with Thee;
Oh, let all apart from Thee fade and flee;
My one love, my best love, is Thee.
