1 Since Jesus came from heaven’s throne
With love, redeeming love;
The greatest boon to mortals known
Is love, redeeming love.

‘Tis love, redeeming love,
Love, redeeming love,
The greatest treasure in the world
Is love, redeeming love.

2 The grace that seeks us when we roam,
Is love, redeeming love;
The guide that leads the wand’rer home,
Is love, redeeming love. [Refrain]

3 The sweetest fellowship is found,
In love, redeeming love;
The greatest joys on earth, abound
Thro’ love, redeeming love. [Refrain]

4 Of all the fairest suns that shine,
Is love, redeeming love;
The light that makes our lives divine,
Is love, redeeming love. [Refrain]
