Lord, my soul with pleasure springs - True Pleasures
(William Cowper/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

True Pleasures.

1. Lord, my soul with pleasure springs,
  when Jesus' name I hear;
and when God the Spirit brings
  the word of promise near:
beauties too, in holiness,
  still delighted I perceive;
nor have words that can express
  the joys thy precepts give. PDF - Midi

2. Clothed in sanctity and grace,
  how sweet it is to see
those who love thee as they pass,
  or when they wait on thee:
pleasant too, to sit and tell
  what we owe to love divine;
till our bosoms grateful swell,
  and eyes begin to shine.

3. Those the comforts I possess,
  which God shall still increase,
all his ways are pleasantness,
  and all his paths are peace.
Nothing Jesus did or spoke,
  henceforth let me ever slight;
for I love his easy yoke,
  and find his burden light.

3,3: Proverbs 3,17.
3,7: Matthew 11,30.
