49. The Saviour's Love

1 Dear Saviour, does Thy love,
So wonderful and free,
Delight to own Thy weakest child,
Who upward looks to Thee?

O love! O wondrous love!
O love that stoops to me!
A love that covers all my sins,
And makes me free in Thee.

2 Give us a deeper love,
That loves Thy love alone;
Resigns all hope of earthly gain,
This wondrous gift to own. [Chorus]

3 Thee only would we love;
Be this our constant aim,
To lose all thought of self in Thee,
And glorify Thy name. [Chorus]

4 Then beautify us, Lord,
And may we meekly show
Our hearts to be Thy temple-home,
Where love shall ever flow. [Chorus]
