The Savior's love will ne'er grow faint

The Savior's love will ne'er grow faint

Author: Paul Henkel
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 The Saviour's love will ne'er grow faint,
Toward the sons of men;
His gracious ear hears their complaints,
Their cries are not in vain.

2 He prov'd himself the sovereign Lord,
And gave the world to know:
What wonders his commanding word;
In ev'ry case can do.

3 He pitied man, that helpless worm,
Thus lying in his blood;
What acts of love does he perform,
To make him know his God.

4 The helpless, needy and the poor,
Alike receiv'd his aid;
And all were made to know his pow'r,
Who his commands obey'd.

5 Wht would my Saviour do for me,
If I would state my case;
Could I expect that I would be
An object of his grace?

6 How many would be my complaints,
Could I but know in part;
My chief diseases and my wants,
And evils of my heart.

7 At all events I will presume,
To venture near his throne;
Since Jesus bids all sinners come
And learn what he has done.
