Representative Text

1 Words of love, and truth, and mercy,
All are in the Gospel found;
They reveal a Saviour for me,
Send the tidings all around.

Oh, I love to hear the story,
Of the Saviour and his love,
And I hope to see his glory,
In the heavenly land above.

2 It affords my soul a pleasure
In the Sunday-school to be,
In my mind and heart to treasure,
Words which last eternally. [Refrain]
