Representative Text

1 Oh, the precious love of Jesus,
Growing sweeter day by day,
Turning all my heart so joyous,
To a heav’nly melody.

Christ is precious, Christ is precious;
In life’s journey He will lead thee;
Christ is precious, Christ is precious;
He will lead thee all the way.

2 But we can not know the fullness
Of the Savior’s wondrous love,
Till we see and know His glory,
In the heav’nly home above. [Refrain]

3 Come and taste the love of Jesus,
At His feet thy burdens lay;
Trust Him with thy grief and sorrow,
Bear this joyful song away. [Refrain]
