Representative Text

1 How lovely is Jesus, the Lamb that was slain,
To win a world’s pardon by sorrow and pain;
How lovely that crown on his once bleeding brow,
And lovely his love which o’er-shadows me now.

Refrain:
He’s the One altogether lovely!
He’s all that the soul can crave;
He’s the One altogether lovely!
Jesus, the mighty to save.

2 Oh, lovely surpassing all loveliness! he
Who died with the thief for a lost world and me,
That I might be perfected here by his love,
And meet him with white robes in heaven above. [Refrain]

3 How lovely that life, doing good ev’rywhere!
Howe lovely that death, with its merciful prayer!
And lovely that blood which on Calvary flow’d,
When washing the stain’d heart, and light’ning its load. [Refrain]

4 How lovely is Jesus! When close to his side,
From doubt and temptation securely we hide!
And lovely his presence,—when loving him best,
He comes to our hearts with the blessing of rest. [Refrain]
