Representative Text

1 Love led my Savior from glory-land
Into a dark world with sinful man,
To give all nations salvation’s plan,
‘Twas love, love, love.

Refrain:
Love, love, love, love,
Wonderful love so free,
Love, love, love, love,
Saved a poor sinner like me;
Love, love, love, love,
Coming from heaven above,
Love, love, love, love,
Wonderful, wonderful love.

2 ‘Twas love that caused Him to leave His own,
And kneel in Gethsemane alone,
And cry, “My Father, Thy will be done!”
‘Twas love, love, love. [Refrain]

3 ‘Twas love that led Him to Calvary,
To suffer the pain and agony,
‘Twas love that caused Him to die for me,
‘Twas love, love, love. [Refrain]
