Representative Text

1 When God in mercy let me see
The preciousness of Jesus,
My sin became an agony,
‘Til I found rest in Jesus.

The worth of worlds could never show
The preciousness of Jesus;
The heav'ns will fade, but never so,
The preciousness of Jesus.

2 The angels find no better song,
The preciousness of Jesus,
Yet I can sing with cause more strong,
The preciousness of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Be this my theme forevermore,
The preciousness of Jesus;
I'll fully know when time is o'er,
The preciousness of Jesus. [Refrain]
