Background

The Hymns and Hymn Writers of The Church
Charles S. Nutter & Wilbur F. Tillett, 1911

This is one of the happiest and most popular of all the translations of a famous hymn of forty-two stanzas, beginning, “Jesu dulcis memoria,” which Dr. Schaff designates as “the sweetest and most evangelical hymn of the Middle Ages.” It is almost universally accredited to St. Bernard of Clairvaux, but it is not absolutely certain that he wrote it. The internal evidence points strongly to him as the author. He had a perfect passion for Christ– was “enamored of his Lord.” In Dr. Ray Palmer’s rendering above we have a translation respectively of verses four, three, twenty, twenty-eight, and ten of the original. Dr. Edward Caswall’s translation of select verses of the original, beginning, “Jesus, the very thought of Thee,” is scarcely less popular than this by Dr. Palmer. (See No. 533.)

“It is in this hymn,” says Duffield, author of English Hymns, “that the great theologian and scholar and preacher of crusades has set the key for modern hymnology. No one can fail to recognize how its spirit has gone into the German and English lyrics.” “Some hymns,” says George John Stevenson, “have so much divine inspiration in them that the world will not let them die. This hymn has been like a charm in the Church for eight hundred years, and its music is as fresh as ever.”

The Hymns and Hymn Writers of The Church
Charles S. Nutter & Wilbur F. Tillett, 1911

Title: “Jesu Dulcis Memoria.” The original, in Thesaurus Hymnologicus, contains forty-eight quatrains. This translation was contributed to Lyra Catholica, 1848. It is also found in Hymns and Poems, Original and Translated, by Edward Caswall, second edition. London, 1873.

Three lines have been changed. The translator wrote:

Verse three, line three:

To those who fall, how kind thou art!

Verse four, line four:

None but his lovers know.

Verse five, line three:

Jesus, be Thou our glory now.

Dr. Philip Schaff, in his Christ in Song, called this “the sweetest and most evangelical (as the Dies Iræ is the grandest and the Stabat Mater the most pathetic) hymn of the Middle Ages.”

The Hymns and Hymn Writers of The Church
Charles S. Nutter & Wilbur F. Tillett, 1911

This hymn is found in every edition of the Methodist Episcopal Hymn Book back to the Coke and Asbury book adopted soon after the organization of the Church, and in the English ancestor of that book, The Pocket Hymn Book, edited by Robert Spence, of York.

Its history is greatly involved. It is a part of a famous Latin hymn entitled, “Jesu dulcis memoria.” Its date and authorship are really unknown, though it is attributed to Bernard of Clairvaux. Later it appeared in German. About 1712 A. W. Boehm made a free translation into English. This was altered by John C. Jacobi in 1720. The hymn as found here is made up of selections from Jacobi.

We quote one unique stanza, the fourteenth, from the Moravian hymn book of 1754:

O wondrous Jesu! greatest King!
The world doth with thy triumphs ring;
Thou conquer’st all, below, above,
Dire fiends with force, and men with love.

This stanza, still further edited, appears in Martin Madin’s Collection, 1760, as follows:

Eternal Lord, Almighty King,
All Heav’n doth with thy triumphs ring!
Thou conquer’st all beneath, above,
Devils with Force, and Men with Love.

This translation of Jesu dulcis memoria (11o) appeared in the American Andover Sabbath Hymn-book, 1858.

Jesu dulcis memoria was probably written about 1150, when he was living in retirement. Dr. Schaff calls it ‘the sweetest and most evangelical hymn of the Middle Ages.’ It is known as the ‘Joyful Rhythm of St. Bernard on the Name of Jesus.’ The oldest form of the text is given by a twelfth-century manuscript in the Bodleian, in forty-two verses of four lines.

Bernard’s devotion to his Master breathes in his famous words, which embody the spirit of the hymn, ‘If thou writest, nothing therein has savor to me unless I read Jesus in it. If thou discoursest or conversest, nothing therein is agreeable to me unless in it also Jesus resounds. Jesus is honey in the mouth, melody in the ear, a song of jubilee in the heart. He is our medicine as well. Is any among you saddened? Let Jesus enter into his heart, and thence leap to his lips, and lo! at the rising illumination of His name every cloud flies away, serenity returns.’

Caswall’s translation is in his Lyra Catholica, 1849. Ver. 5 is taken from another source.

1Jesus! The very thought of Thee
With sweetness fills the breast;
But sweeter far Thy face to see,
And in Thy presence rest.
2Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame,
Nor can the memory find
A sweeter sound than Thy blest Name,
O Savior of mankind!
3O Hope of every contrite heart,
O Joy of all the meek,
To those who fall, how kind Thou art,
How good to those who seek!
4But what to those who find? Ah, this
Nor tongue nor pen can show;
The love of Jesus, what it is,
None but His loved ones know.
5Jesus, our only Joy be Thou,
As Thou our Prize wilt be;
Jesus, be Thou our Glory now
And through eternity! Amen.
1Jesu! The very thought is sweet;
In that dear name all heart-joys meet
But sweeter than the honey far
The glimpses of His presence are.
2No word is sung more sweet than this;
No name is heard more full of bliss;
No thought brings sweeter comfort nigh
Than Jesus, Son of God most high.
3Jesu, the hope of souls forlorn,
How good to them for sin that mourn!
To them that seek Thee, oh how kind!
But what art Thou to them that find?
4No tongue of mortal can express,
No letters write its blessedness,
Alone who hath Thee in his heart
Knows, love of Jesus, what Thou art.
5O Jesu, King of wondrous might,
O Victor, glorious from the fight,
Sweetness that may not be expressed,
And altogether loveliest!
6Remain with us, O Lord, today,
In every heart Thy grace display,
That, now the shades of night are fled,
On Thee our spirits may be fed.
7All honor, laud, and glory be
O Jesu, virgin-born, to Thee;
All glory, as is ever meet,
To Father and to Paraclete!

Psalm73:1 Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart. 2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. 3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 4 For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm. 5 They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men. 6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment. 7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish. 8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily. 9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth. 10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them. 11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High? 12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches. 13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency. 14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning. 15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children. 16 When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; 17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end. 18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction. 19 How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors. 20 As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image. 21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins. 22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee. 23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. 24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. 25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. 26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. 27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee. 28 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
