What is the love of Jesus to thee

What is the love of Jesus to thee

Author: Richard Slater
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 What is the love of Jesus to thee?
Art thou its claims denying?
Dost thou e’er think how he on the tree
Gained thy salvation by dying?

Refrain:
O remember, O remember
All a loving Saviour bore for thee!
O remember, O remember
Jesus dying on the tree!

2 What is the call of Jesus to thee?
Say, is thy heart replying?
Henceforth is he thy Master to be?
Wilt thou as rebel defy him?

3 What is his grace, O sinner, to thee?
O ‘tis of thanks deserving,
Waiting so long thy soul to set free,
Love in its purpose ne’er swerving.

4 What is the name of Jesus to thee?
Art thou his fame extending?
Dost thou obey? He says: Follow me,
Life in my service be spending.
