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.

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]
