Lyrics

Great is the love that brought me
Out of the path of sin;
Great is the love that gave me
Pardon and peace within.

Refrain

Great is the love that saves me,
Saves me hour by hour;
Wonderful love of Jesus—
Who can resist its power?

Great is the love that draws me
Near to my heav’nly guide;
Great is the love that keeps me
Close to His bleeding side.

Refrain

Great is the love that leads me
Safely where’er I go;
More of its power and greatness
Teach me, O Lord, to know.

Refrain

Great is the love preparing
Mansions of rest above;
There shall I know its fullness,
Wonderful, boundless love.
