1 When I think of the love of my Saviour,
He my portion forever shall be,
For I count all things loss in the light of His cross,
When I think of His love for me.

Refrain:
When I think of His love for me,
When I think of His love for me,
Hallelujah I’ll sing, Jesus Christ is my King,
When I think of His love for me.

2 When I think of the love of my Saviour,
In the garden my Lord I can see,
And the cross where He died, for my sins crucified,
When I think of His love for me. [Refrain]

3 When I think of the love of my Saviour,
I accept of the pardon so free,
I will sing forth His praise to the end of my days,
When I think of His love for me. [Refrain]
