1. The love that Jesus had for me,
To suffer on the cruel tree,
That I a ransomed soul might be,
Is more than tongue can tell.

Refrain
His love is more than tongue can tell;
His love is more than tongue can tell;
The love that Jesus had for me,
Is more than tongue can tell.

2. The many sorrows that He bore,
And oh, that crown of thorns He wore,
That I might live forevermore,
Is more than tongue can tell. [Refrain]

3. The peace I have in Him, my Lord,
Who pleads before the throne of God,
The merit of His precious blood,
Is more than tongue can tell. [Refrain]

4. The joy that comes when He is near,
The rest He gives, so free from fear,
The hope in Him so bright and clear,
Is more than tongue can tell. [Refrain]
