Representative Text

1 There’s a love with no beginning,
And a love without an end;
Purer than the love of mother,
Dearer than the love of friend;
‘Tis the love that groweth sweeter,
As the fleeting years unfold;
And my life is made completer
By the love that can’t be told.

No, it never, never, never can be told!
For it never, never, never groweth old!
And it brightens ev’ry day,
As I walk the narrow way,
And it never, never, never can be told!

2 Mothers may forget their children,
Friendship wither and decay;
But the love of Christ endureth,
It can never fade away;
Like the pearly gates of heaven
Like the streets of shining gold
Is this love to sinners given,
For it never can grow old. [Refrain]

3 Long ago I learned the story,
Of the Love that died for me;
But I closed my heart to Jesus,
And forgot dear Calvary;
Oft’ in paths of in I wandered,
Turned my back upon the fold;
But the Saviour sought and found me,
O his love cannot be told. [Refrain]

4 Let me tell to you the story,
Let me sing it o’er and o’er;
it will be our theme in glory,
When we stand on heav’n’s fair shore;
When we cast our crown before him;
When we strike the harp of gold,
Then we’ll swell redemption’s anthem
For the love that can’t be told. [Refrain]
