By love never failing

Full Text

1 By love never failing, love gentle and kind,
Love showing forth daily the Master’s own mind,
By love that in serving new blessings will find,
Let others see Jesus in you.

Refrain:
Let others see Jesus in you,
Let others see Jesus in you;
Keep telling the story reflecting His glory,
Let others see Jesus in you.

2 By pow’r, when temptations are surging around,
To sing of the grace that still more will abound,
So press on in conflict till praises resound;
Let others see Jesus in you. [Refrain]

3 By smiles that come freely from some hidden spring,
By songs that to Jesus will joyfully ring;
By words that to others, salvation will bring,
Let others see Jesus in you. [Refrain]
