Lyrics

The chords of love bind me above
To One who never changes;
Nor time, nor space can e’er efface,
His boundless love for me.

Refrain

Neither height, nor depth,
Nor breadth, shall separate me
From the love of Him
Who shed His precious blood;
Neither height, nor depth,
Nor breadth, shall separate me
From the love of God.

Refrain

The price He gave, my soul to save,
Upon the cross of anguish;
The shame and woe, O who can know,
How much He cared for me.

Refrain

His love complete, with joys replete,
Supplies my every longing;
It brings no pain, no loss, but gain,
The love He gives to me.
