Representative Text

1 Faithful is he, and great his mercies are,
Lasting is his love, lasting is his love;
All thro’ his word his promises declare,
His love shall never move.

’Tis love, ’tis love, redeeming love,
’Tis love that ever will abide,
’Tis love that knows no ebb nor flow,
’Tis love that opened wide a crimson tide,
That washes white as snow.

2 Love found a way to rescue fallen man,
Love so full and free, love so full and free
’Twas love that formed and carried on the plan,
And sent my Lord to me. [Refrain]

3 “Love is the chain, the golden chain that binds,
Happy souls above, happy souls above;
He is an heir of heav’n indeed who finds,
His bosom glow with love.” [Refrain]
