My blessed Savior, is thy love

Full Text

1. My blessèd Savior, is Thy love
So great, so full, so free?
Behold, I give my love, my heart,
My life, my all to Thee.

2. I love Thee for the glorious worth
In Thy great self I see:
I love Thee for that shameful cross
Thou hast endured for me.

3. No man of greater love can boast
Than for his friend to die:
But for Thy enemies Thou wast slain:
What love with Thine can vie!

4. O Lord, I’ll cherish in my soul
The memory of Thy love:
And Thy dear name shall still to me
A priceless treasure prove.

Notes

My blessed Saviour, is Thy love. J. Stennett. [Holy Communion.] Appeared in his Hymns on the Lord's Supper, 1697, No. 22, in 10 stanzas of 4 lines, and again in his Works, 1732, vol. iv. p. 111. It is usually given in 3 stanzas (st. i.-iii.) somewhat altered, as in the Leeds Hymn Book, 1853, and others. Another arrangement is, “O blessed Saviour, is Thy love." In some collections this extends to 6 stanzas, as in Snepp's Songs of Grace & Glory, 1872, but a shorter form is in more frequent use.
