His love is enough for me

Representative Text

1 No more can the world’s fleeting pleasure allure;
His love is enough for me;
I seek for the things that are lasting and sure;
His love is enough for me.
I know He will keep me quite safe all the way
With Him as my guide, I can ne’er go astray;
The goodness of Jesus I’ll sing ev’ry day;
His love is enough for me.

Refrain:
His love, His love, His redeeming love,
Like a fountain full and free,
Will satisfy ev’ry longing soul;
His love is enough for me.

2 Thro’ sorrow and joy He is always the same;
His love is enough for me;
I find Him so near when I can on His name;
His love is enough for me.
The shadow may hide for a moment His face,
But still thro’ the darkness His footsteps I trace,
He will not forsake me, the child of His grace;
His love is enough for me. [Refrain]

3 I know I’ve a home in that beautiful land;
His love is enough for me;
Redeem’d by His grace with the ransomed I’ll stand;
His love is enough for me.
The veil will be lifted, I’ll look o’er the way
My Saviour has led me, thro’ life’s little day;
With heart full of gratitude then will I say,
His love is enough for me. [Refrain]
