Take me, Jesus, to thy breast - Evensong
(Gerhard Tersteegen/Frances Bevan/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Evensong.

Psalm 91,4.

1. Take me, Jesus, to thy breast;
folded close in warmth and rest
  keep me near to thee;
silenced in the bliss profound
of the love that wraps me round,
  every care shall be. (PDF - Midi)

2. Every breath for thee alone,
O my hearts beloved One;
  comfort me in sleep.
Still deep rest art thou to thine,
safely in thine arms divine
  thy beloved keep.

Frances Bevan, Hymns of Ter Steegen, Suso and others 1, 1899,48. After Gerhard Tersteegen.
