His Love Is Over All

Representative Text

1 O magnify the Lord with me,
His love is over all,
The fountain of my soul is he,
His love is over all.
O life is such a blessed thing,
When safely sheltered by his wing,
I surely must rejoice and sing,
His love is over all.

Chorus:
His love is over all,
So boundless, full and free,
O blessed never dying love
That paid the price for me.

2 How can I ever go astray,
His love is over all,
My feet he’ll keep from day to day,
His love is over all.
I ne’er can pay the debt I owe,
Unto the Lord who loves me so,
Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
His love is over all. [Chorus]

3 My waking hours he fills with songs,
His love is over all,
I know to whom my soul belongs,
His love is over all.
I would not if I could be free,
His service is a joy to me;
My eyes shall soon His beauty see,
His love is over all. [Chorus]
