1. ’Tis the love of Jesus cheers our hearts today,
Makes our earth an Eden, drives the clouds away.

Love of Jesus, love unbounded, love so free,
Sweetest story ever told to me!

2. ’Tis the love of Jesus lightens every task,
Gives us strength and comfort, more than we can ask. [Refrain]

3. ’Tis the love of Jesus makes our pathway bright,
Fills our hearts with singing, and our lives with light. [Refrain]

4. Blessèd love of Jesus, freely to us giv’n,
Theme of all the ages, sweetest song of Heav’n. [Refrain]
