1 What boundless love did Jesus show!
I cannot tell, nor fully know,
What grief, what agony, and woe,
He bore to set me free.

Oh, boundless love!
That I redeem'd from sin might be!
Oh, boundless love!
That Jesus gave His life for me!

2 Yet may my lips tell forth His fame,
My vice sing out His worthy name,
My sinful heart His mercy claim,
And trust His boundless love. [Chorus]

3 I heard the loving Saviour say:
"Come unto Me! — I am the Way!
I'll turn thy darkness into day":
I came — He leads me on! [Chorus]

4 His Word shall evermore endure,
His precious blood can keep me pure;
His love for me is ever sure,
And will be to the end. [Chorus]
