Representative Text

1 Come, talk to me of Jesus,
That loving friend divine;
For what on earth so precious
To this lone heart of mine?
And if amid the careless
My feet begin to rove,
Then talk to me of Jesus,
And tell me of His love.

Refrain:
I love to hear of Jesus,
I love to hear of Jesus,
I love to hear of Jesus,
Of Jesus and His love.

2 Come, sing to me of Jesus,
When life is ebbing fast,
And all the joys and sorrows
Will soon be overpast;
When, with their beams of glory,
The heav’ns shall glow above,
Then sing to me of Jesus,
And tell me of His love. [Refrain]

3 Before the throne of Jesus,
Where saints in glory stand,
To tell redemption’s story
I’ll join the choral band;
And with the sweetest music
That ever heart can move,
Oh, then I’ll sing of Jesus,
And praise Him for His love. [Refrain]
