Representative Text

1 His love so changeless, deep and strong,
Poured out so freely and so long,
Has won at last my stubborn heart,
And I am His– no more to part.

He loves me so, O this I know,
Yes, well I know He loves me so!
I'll live for Him while here below,
Because my Saviour loves me so.

2 I hear His call, the call of love;
He woos my heart to joys above;
Yes, Lord, I'll follow day by day,
Within this sweet tho' narrow way. [Refrain]

3 If e'er I wander from Thy side,
O draw me back whate'er betide;
Thy loving yoke I gladly own,
In heart and will am Thine alone. [Refrain]

4 My weakness on Thy strength relies,
To press the fight and win the prize;
O gird me with Thy love and might,
Till ev'ry foe is put to flight. [Refrain]
