Perfect love I have for Jesus

Representative Text

1. Perfect love I have for Jesus,
He doth cast all fear away;
Easing oft the pain of trial,
Vict'ry over Satan's sway.

Chorus:
Perfect love, Oh! sweet delight,
Giving us a wondrous sight
Of our Saviour's matchless love,
Watching o'er us from above.

2. Sweetest love from Heavn'n abiding,
Richest treasure coming down,
Perfect oneness with my Saviour,
Happiness of life the crown. [Chorus]

3. Tho' in passing thro' earth's pathway,
Many thorns and briers grow,
Trials gather thickly, daily
Balm from Heav'n to heal doth flow. [Chorus]

4. Let us love our precious Jesus,
Loving Him with all the heart;
Soon He'll gather all the chosen,
Never more from Him to part. [Chorus]
