1 O blessed Saviour, is thy love
So great, so full, so free?
Behold we give our thoughts, our hearts,
Our lives, our all, to thee.

2 We love thee for the glorious worth
Which in thyself we see;
We love thee for that cross of shame
Endured so patiently.

3 No man of greater love can boast
Than for his friend to die;
Thou for thine enemies wast slain;
What love with thine can vie?

4 Make us like thee in meekness, love,
And every beauteous grace,
From glory unto glory changed
Till we behold thy face.

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.
