Representative Text

1 Great is the love that brought me
Out of the path of sin;
Great is the love that gave me
Pardon and peace within.

Refrain:
Great is the love that saves me,
Saves me hour by hour;
Wonderful love of Jesus,
Who can resist its power?

2 Great is the love that draws me
Near to my heavenly Guide;
Great is the love that keeps me
Close to His bleeding side. [Refrain]

3 Great is the love that leads me
Safely where’er I go;
More of its power and greatness,
Teach me, O Lord, to know. [Refrain]

4 Great is the love preparing
Mansions of rest above;
There shall I know its fullness,
Wonderful, boundless love. [Refrain]
