What temperature should a good hot bath be?

I love having a nice hot bath, but I rarely find time for it these days. Also, I am terrible at judging the correct temperature before I step in. I frequently run a hot bath, step in, then have to get out a couple of minutes later because I am on the verge of passing out. If I try not to make it so hot, I end up shivering in a lukewarm bath. So, this becomes another reason I rarely take baths.
So, in order to remedy my bath-drawing failures, please tell me what temperature my bath should be. I'm happy to be a dork and take a thermometer into the bathroom.
