1 How sweet is the love of Jesus!
‘Tis dearer than life to me,
Than costliest pearl more precious,
And O, I am glad ‘tis free.

Precious love of Jesus,
Changeless, pure and free;
Precious love of Jesus
That He freely giveth me.

2 In sorrow it is my comfort,
In trouble it is my stay;
When clouds of affliction gather,
It driveth them all away. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ friendship the dearest fail me,
Tho’ loved ones may leave my side,
His love is for me unchanging,
With it I am satisfied. [Refrain]

4 And when on the heights of glory,
My eyes shall behold the king,
In rapturous praise unending,
His wonderful love I’ll sing. [Refrain]
