Representative Text

1 The love of Jesus fills my soul,
And makes me sing for joy;
It helps me bear with patience all
The troubles which annoy.

Chorus:
O precious love, O love divine,
Abide within this soul of mine,
And I will sing with joy thy praise,
Still more and more thro' endless days.

2 The love of Jesus is my light,
My guide from day to day;
My comfort in the cheerless night,
My song along the way. [Chorus]

3 The love of Jesus is my shield
When enemies assail;
It gives me strength the sword to wield,
And helps me to prevail. [Chorus]

4 The love of Jesus draws me on
To rest and joys untold,
To that blest land of fade-less dawn,
Beyond the gates of gold. [Chorus]
