Why I Love the Lord

Representative Text

1 Do you know why I love the Lord so well,
Why I serve Him with delight?
He redeemed my soul from the flames of hell,
From the gloom of endless night.

O He died to ransom me;
I believe and now I'm free;
Jesus daily dwells within,
Sweetly keeping me from sin,
Yes, and this is the life for me.

2 Do you know why I love the Lord so well,
Why He is to me so dear?
He has blessed me more than my tongue can tell;
He has banished all my fear. [Refrain]

3 Do you know why I love the Lord so well?
I will gladly tell you why,
He has taught me how to escape from hell,
And to make my home on high. [Refrain]

4 Do you know why I love the Lord so well?
He's so patient and so true,
And his holy love for us will not fail,
But is ever sweet and new. [Refrain]

5 I delight to tell how I love the Lord,
O that all the world would hear,
For He died for all, and His Holy Word
Calls the worst of sinners near. [Refrain]
