I Love to Sing of Jesus

I love to sing of Jesus, who hath redeemed my soul

Author: P. P. Bilhorn
Tune: [I love to sing of Jesus] (12334)
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 I love to sing of Jesus,
Who hath redeemed my soul,
Whose blood, for me outpouring,
Hath cleans'd and made me whole.

Oh, saints, arouse and proclaim it,
Come sing this joyful strain,
That Jesus died for sinners,
And now he lives again.

2 I love to sing of heaven,
For there my Saviour dwells;
And while His grace still keeps me,
His boundless love I'll tell. [Chorus]

3 I love to talk with Jesus,
When burdened down with grief;
I tell Him all my sorrows,
He grants me sweet relief. [Chorus]

4 Then, sinners, come to Jesus,
Confessing all your sin:
For now the door is open,
He bids you enter in. [Chorus]
