871. Infinite Love

1 Our Father hath so loved us,
He gave His only Son
To die for guilty sinners,
To ransom everyone;
Such love is more than human,
Compassionate, divine;
Because He died, I’m living,
And heaven’s joy is mine.

Refrain:
Oh, love, oh love
That came from heav’n above!
His Son He gave my soul to save,
I know that God is love.

2 He loved the lost one straying
Upon the mountains cold;
Love sought me from the darkness,
And brought me to His fold;
While feasting in His presence
His graces rich I prove;
He keeps His banner o’er me—
’Tis love, unfailing love. [Refrain]

3 A mother’s love is tender,
It floweth warm and free:
Though she forget her offspring,
Yet I’ll remember thee;
His love, a brilliant beacon
The ages cannot dim:
Behold, with loving kindness
He draweth us to Him! [Refrain]

4 Oh, precious love of Jesus!
It melts the heart of stone,
And molds it in His image,
And binds it to His own;
His love in us perfected,
Will doubt and fear remove;
Put on, O holy brethren,
This bond of perfect love. [Refrain]
