1 If you but knew the love so true
Of Jesus who has died for you,
You’d come on bended knee and sue
For pard’ning grace,—if you but knew.

Refrain:
If you but knew, if you but knew
The boundless love he has for you,
You’d love him, trust him, serve him, too, —
If you but knew, if you but knew.

2 If you but knew how free his grace,
How strong and tender his embrace,
You’d give the love that is his due,—
If you but new, if you but knew. [Refrain]

3 If you but knew the sweet relief
He gives his people in their grief,
And how their strength he will renew,
You’d trust in him—if you but knew. [Refrain]

4 If you but new the holy might
That put Satanic foes to flight,
How with his pow’r he will endue,
You’d come to him, —if you but knew. [Refrain]
