O thou, who holdest in my heart - After the Holy Communion
(Carl Johann Philipp Spitta/Richard Massie/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

After the Holy Communion.

1. O thou, who holdest in my heart
  the chief and dearest place,
my life, my peace, my joy who art,
  who crownest me with grace!

2. There is not one like thee, the best
  and truest friend to me;
the heart can find no real rest,
  until it rests in thee;

3. till thou its doubts and fears remov'st,
  and makest it secure,
that the same love wherewith thou lov'st
  for ever will endure.

4. Relying on thy word, O Lord,
  I sought thee and I found,
for firm reliance on thy word
  with sure success is crowned.

5. Yes, thee I found, who in my heart
  dost hold the dearest place,
my life, my joy, my peace who art, –
  who crownest me with grace!

Richard Massie, Lyra Domestica II, 1864, 62.
Translated from the German O du, den meine Seele liebt - Nach dem heiligen Abendmahle
of Carl Johann Philipp Spitta.
