I Will Sing of Jesus Love Lyrics
1 I will sing of Jesus’ love,
Sing of him who first loved me;
For he left bright worlds above,
And died on Calvary.
I will sing of Jesus’ love,
Endless praise my heart shall give;
He has died that I might live,
I will sing his love to me
2 Ere a tear had dim’d mine eyes,
Jesus’ tears for me did flow;
Ere my first faint prayer could rise,
He had prayed in tones of woe. [Refrain]
3 O the depths of love divine!
Earth or heav’n can never know
How that sins as dark as mine
Can be made as white as snow. [Refrain]
4 Nothing good for him I’ve done;
How could he such love bestow?
Lord, I own my heart is won;
Help me now my love to show. [Refrain]
