104. The Half has Never been Told

1 I know I love thee better, Lord,
Than any earthly joy,
For thou hast given me the peace
Which nothing can destroy.

Chorus:
The half has never yet been told,
Of love so full and free;
The half has never yet been told,
The blood--it cleanseth me.

2 I know that thou art nearer still
Than any earthly throng,
And sweeter is the thought of thee
Than any lovely song.
{Chorus}

3 Thou hast put gladness in my heart;
Then well may I be glad
Without the secret of thy love
I could not but be sad.
[Chorus]

4 O Saviour, precious Saviour mine!
What will thy presence be
If such a life of joy can crown
Our walk on earth with thee?
[Chorus]
