1 How loving is Jesus who came from the sky,
In tenderest pity for sinners to die;
His hands and His feet were nailed to the tree,
And all this He suffer’d for you and for me.

O loving Jesus,
O loving Jesus,
O loving Jesus,
I long thy dear face to behold.

2 How freely does Jesus full pardon impart,
To all who receive Him by faith in their hearts;
No evil betides them, their home is above
And Jesus throws ‘round them the arms of His love. [Refrain]

3 How precious is Jesus to all who believe,
And out of His fullness, what grace they receive,
When weak He supports them, when erring He guides,
And ev’rything needful He kindly provides. [Refrain]
