The Love of the Lord

Representative Text

1 All that I counted as gain
Now I consider as loss,
Empty and worthless to me
In the light of the love of the Lord.

2 Riches and honors will fade,
Earthly delight disappear,
Fade like the grass of the field
In the light of the love of the Lord.

Refrain:
What more could bring us hope
than to know the pow'r of his life?
What more could bring us peace
than to share in his suff'ring and death?
What more could be our final wish
than to live in the love of the Lord?

3 Silver and gold have I none,
No land to count as my home,
Yet Wealth beyond measure I own
In the light of the love of the Lord.

4 Faith is the wealth I possess
Finding its source in my God:
Faith in the promise of Christ
Is my life and my love of the Lord. [Refrain]
