What Language Shall I Borrow?

Jesus  3860e4efb25eb479cf4d11d24d8b5772

What language shall I borrow
to thank thee, dearest friend,
for this thy dying sorrow,
thy pity without end?
Oh, make me thine forever,
and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never,
outlive my love to thee.

~ Paul Gerhardt
