None the love of Christ can measure

Representative Text

NONE the love of Christ can measure,
None its depths can ever tell,
None can estimate the tree
Held by those who with him dwell.

Refrain:
On the cross his life did Jesus give for me;
What a Saviour! Hallelujah!
There he died for me who was his enemy;
What a Saviour I have found!

2 O how wondrous is the story!
That his pardon I might claim
Jesus left the realms of Glory
And on earth a man became.

3 Heavy-laden I approached him,
Sorrow filled my aching heart,
But the blessèd word was spoken,
Bidding all my fear depart.

4 Hope each guilty soul may cherish,
Trembling hearts need not despair,
Jesus died that none might perish,
He for all sin’s curse did bear.
