Love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame.@Song of Solomon 8:6

Before a cross uplifted high,
I stood alone one day;
My soul was burdened with a guilt
No tears could wash away.

Refrain

Love, mighty and wonderful,
Love, boundless and free,
Love that suffered upon the cross,
The love that died for me.

In grief and pain I wept aloud,
In helpless agony;
When from the cross I heard One speak,
I gave My life for thee.

Refrain

That voice, so sweet, entranced my soul,
It gave me hope and cheer;
Tho’ trembling, I drew near the cross,
For I had naught to fear.

Refrain

And there upon that cruel cross
My Savior died that day;
I looked, believed, and from my soul,
The burden rolled away.
