Lyrics

The love of Je­sus, who can tell,
Tho’ he may know it, oh, so well?
The love that ev­ery 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 ev­ery sin on Him was laid;
My ev­ery 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!
