Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.@Romans 8:39

’Tis the love of Jesus cheers our hearts today,
Makes our earth an Eden, drives the clouds away.

Refrain

Love of Jesus, love unbounded, love so free,
Sweetest story ever told to me!

’Tis the love of Jesus lightens every task,
Gives us strength and comfort, more than we can ask.

Refrain

’Tis the love of Jesus makes our pathway bright,
Fills our hearts with singing, and our lives with light.

Refrain

Blessèd love of Jesus, freely to us giv’n,
Theme of all the ages, sweetest song of Heav’n.
