Hugh H. McGranahan (1854–1931)


I will sing the love of Je­sus,
Greater love was ne­ver known;
Yielding up His life for sin­ners,
Oh! what love to me was shown.


I will praise my great Re­deem­er,
As my days are on the wing;
I will sing of Him who saves me,
I will mag­ni­fy the Lord my king.

I will sing the words of Je­sus,
Words of life from lips di­vine;
Full of com­fort, joy and cour­age,
Precious to this soul of mine.


I will sing the grace of Je­sus,
Grace my heart may now re­ceive;
He by faith will seal my par­don,
If His pro­mise I be­lieve.


I will sing the name of Je­sus,
Name of all most dear to me;
By the ran­somed host in glo­ry
Shall His name ex­alt­ed be.
