Representative Text

1 It is not dying love alone
That fills my heart with peace,
But love still flowing from the throne—
A love that will not cease.

‘Twas dying love, ‘twas dying love,
That paid, that paid my debt;
‘Tis living love, ‘tis living love
That loves, that loves me yet!

2 His love was stronger than the death
Endured on Calvary;
And many waters cannot quench
The love He has for me. [Refrain]

3 The dying love is still unchanged
Since He, my Lord, arose;
His heart can never be estranged,
His love for ever flows. [Refrain]

4 The love that sent its Well-Beloved,
The love that gladly came;
Which was by death so fully proved,
That love is still the same. [Refrain]

5 The love that prompted such a gift
Will never let me go;
Beyond its pow’r I cannot drift,
Because He loves me so. [Refrain]
