1 Dear Lord, my heart has heard Thy call!
Before Thy cross I prostrate fall,
And unto Thee surrender all,
O Love divine, O Love divine!

O Love divine, so full, so free,
Thy wondrous pow’r has conquered me!
Forevermore my heart is Thine,
O Love divine, O Love divine!

2 Thy pleading eyes have looked on me,
Thy sweet voice said, “I died for thee;”
No more a rebel can I be,
O Love divine, O Love divine! [Chorus]

3 I spurned Thy grace and far did stray,
Yet “Child, come home,” I heard Thee say;
Love came to meet me on the way,
O Love divine, O Love divine! [Chorus]

4 O Love, my star in sorrow’s night,
When foes assail, my sword of might;
O Love, my joy, my life, my light,
O Love divine, O Love divine! [Chorus]
