1 I will sing the love of Jesus,
Greater love was never known;
Yielding up His life for sinners,
Oh! what love to me was shown.

Refrain:
I will sing, I will sing,
As my days are on the wing;
And my song shall be of Jesus,
My Redeemer, and my King.

2 I will sing the words of Jesus,
Words of life from lips divine,
Full of comfort, joy, and courage,
Precious to this soul of mine. [Refrain]

3 I will sing the grace of Jesus,
Which such wonders will achieve,
For by grace I claim redemption,
Since in Him I do believe. [Refrain]

4 I will sing the name of Jesus,
Hope of life that is to be;
Sweeter name was never spoken,
Oh! how dear it is to me. [Refrain]
