Love that passeth knowledge, hath Christ

Representative Text

1 Love that passeth knowledge, hath Christ the Lord for you,
Love that sought and found you and paid the ransom due,
Love that never faileth and never groweth dim,
For this love of Jesus what have you to give to Him?

Love that passeth knowledge, the love of Christ your King!
Earth and sky are praising Him, children come and gladly sing,
Love that passeth knowledge, the love of Christ your King!
Heart and voice uniting, let your grateful praises ring.

2 Out upon the prairie, and on the bounding sea,
Thor’ the pathless forest, where deepest shadows be,
On the highest mountain and in the lowly vale,
Shines this love of Jesus, heav’nly love that cannot fail. [Refrain]

3 He will share your burdens, O come, as long ago,
Weary ones came often, His grace and help to know.
He the Burden-bearer will meet your need today,
Trust the love of Jesus, for it fadeth not away. [Refrain]

4 He will never leave you, oh, trust His loving care!
In the time of tempest to Him in faith repair,
He will safely guide you, will guide you with His eye,
O’er life’s earnest conflict He is watching from on high. [Refrain]
