Representative Text

1 What now is dwelling within my heart
Bidding its sorrows and care depart?
Peace that another can ne’er impart,—
Only the love of Jesus.

Refrain:
Who died on the cross for me?
Whose blood is my only plea?
Who broke my fetters and set me free?
‘Tis Jesus, Jesus,
‘Tis Jesus.

2 What is the blessing that gives me cheer
When life is weary, and skies are drear,
That bids me trust Him and never fear?
Only the love of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 What is the power that makes me strong,
Right ever loving and hating wrong,
That keeps me safely my journey long?
Only the love of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 What will support me when life is past,
Ever about me to hold me fast.
To bring me safely to heav’n at last?
Only the love of Jesus. [Refrain]
