51. Jesus Is Dearer Than All

1 Jesus is my loving Saviour, He is so precious to me;
O, how I love and adore Him for all His mercies so free;
When I was lost on the mountains barren and dark and cold,
He sought the sheep that was straying, He bro’t me back to the fold.

Chorus:
Jesus, Jesus, dearer than all to me,
Jesus, Jesus, Thine, only Thine I’ll be;
Where Thou dost lead I will follow,
Where’er the path may be;
Then when life’s journey is ended
Thy face in glory I’ll see.

2 Jesus the sweet rose of Sharon, Jesus the lily so fair;
Jesus my rock and salvation, Jesus the bright morning star;
He is my portion forever, my all in all is He!
With Him I cannot be lonely, He fully satisfies me. [Chorus]

3 Jesus was born in a manger, wept in the garden alone;
Poured out His life’s blood on Calv’ry, died for our sin to atone;
Rose from the grave more than conq’ror, went to His home on high;
Soon He is coming in glory, coming in clouds of the sky. [Chorus]
