The love of Jesus, who can tell,
Tho’ he may know it, oh, so well?
The love that ev’ry want supplies,
The love that always satisfies;
His love is all I need!

Refrain

So wonderful, His love to me!
More wonderful how could it be?
My ev’ry sin on Him was laid;
My ev’ry debt by Him was paid;
His love is all I need!

The love of Jesus, oh, what bliss,
To hear Him whisper, I am His!
Tho’ I may falter on the way,
He will not let me go astray;
His love is all I need!

Refrain

The love of Jesus, oh, how sweet,
To hide in such a safe retreat!
Tho’ Satan would my hopes destroy,
My Savior’s love is still my joy;
His love is all I need!

Refrain
