Representative Text

1 A song there is, ‘tis wondrous sweet,
The song of Jesus’ love;
And we shall oft this song repeat
In the shining realms above.

O beautiful song,
The song of redeeming love,
Like incense sweet it soars aloft
To the throne of God above.

2 Redeem’d from sin, made pure and white,
That love we’ll better know;
Up there in God’s eternal light
We shall learn how much we owe. [Refrain]

3 Whate’er we have of wealth or bliss,
That love for us hath bought;
No friend can give us love like this
For it passes human thought. [Refrain]

4 To sing that song is bliss supreme,
It rings thro’ heav’n above;
The love of God is all its theme,
And ‘tis everlasting love. [Refrain]
