Representative Text

1 Rich blessing, oft has earth to give,
And heav’n has much in store,
For him alone “whom Jesus loved”—
Oh, may I love Him more.

Refrain:
The one, the one whom Jesus loved,
Best hope of life for me,
To be the one whom Jesus loved,
Is heav’n on earth for me.

2 Fain would I lay my burdens down,
My sins at Jesus’ feet;
‘Tis all I have, ‘tis all I wish,
To be in Him complete. [Refrain]

3 To share the love of Christ my Lord,
His love, so full, so free;
All I could hope, all I could ask,
‘Tisall my earthly plea. [Refrain]
