Representative Text

1 I love Him, tho’ unworthy ever
Of all that He has done for me;
My son and service shall forever
Be giv’n to Christ of Calvary.

And I love Him, O I love Him,
Though unworthy in my life He deigns to dwell;
How I love Him, how I love Him,
Only time and eternity can tell.

2 I love Him and whenever living
Just where He would not have me stay;
He, ever loving and forgiving,
Just leads me in the better way. [Refrain]

3 In vain I strive my tho’t to fashion,
That all my love I might express;
I know that He in kind compassion,
Deals gently with my feebleness. [Refrain]

4 I often wonder when I grieve Him,
That He so patient is with me;
I pray that I may never leave Him,
But with Him evermore shall be. [Refrain]
