Oh, I love to read of Jesus and His love,
How He left His Father’s mansion far above,
How He came on earth to live,
How He came His life to give,
Oh, I love to read of Jesus and His love.


It’s just like Him to take my sins away,
To make me glad and free,
To keep me day by day;
It’s just like Him to give His life for me,
That I might go to Heaven and ever with Him be.

Oh, I love to read of Jesus as He went
Everywhere, to do His Father’s will intent;
How He gave the blind their sight,
How He gave the wronged ones right,
How He swift deliverance to the captive sent.


Oh, I love to read of Jesus on the tree,
For it shows how great the love that died for me;
And the blood that from His side
Flowed, when on the cross He died,
Paid my debt and evermore doth make me free.


Oh, my dear and precious Savior, at Thy feet
Here I give myself and all I have complete;
I will serve Thee all my days
With a heart all filled with praise,
And I’ll thank Thee face to face when we shall meet.
