Representative Text

1 There is no love like the love of Jesus,
Never to fail or fall,
Till into the fold of the peace of God,
He has gathered us all.

Chorus:
Jesus' love, precious love,
Boundless and pure and free!
Oh, turn to that love, weary, wand'ring soul,
Jesus pleadeth for thee.

2 There is no heart like the heart of Jesus,
Fill'd with a tender love;
No throb of woe that our hearts can know,
But He feeds it above. [Chorus]

3 Oh, hearken now to the voice of Jesus;
Why will you longer roam:
There's peace and rest on His loving breast,
And a glad heav'nly home. [Chorus]
