Lyrics

There’s a love that can not fade,
Nor thro’ sunshine nor thro’ shade,
But remains the same tho’ kingdoms rise and fall;
It is given free of cost,
That no soul need e’er be lost;
’Tis the love of Jesus—’tis the best of all.

Refrain

His love is always true,
His skies are always blue,
Flow’rs are blooming in His sunshine,
Made for me and you;
His love is always true,
Shining the long days thro’
Jesus is a friend worth having,
His love is true.

There’s a love that knows no fear,
For the ones His heart holds dear;
And He watches o’er and keeps them in His care;
’Round them His protecting arm,
Where they’re safe and free from harm;
’Tis the love that every one may freely share.

Refrain

There’s a love that never dies,
And it reaches to the skies;
It will shine forever Heav’n’s unsetting sun;
To us all ’tis given free
Now, and thro’ eternity;
’Tis the love of Jesus—true and only One.
