Dear Jesus Is the One I Love, anonymous, in The Salvation Army Music, compiled by William Booth (London: The Salvation Army Book Department, circa 1900), number 5 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Now, in a song of grateful praise,
To my dear Lord my voice I’ll raise;
With all His saints I’ll join to tell—
My Jesus has done all things well.

Refrain

Dear Jesus is the One I love,
Oh, bless His name! He died for me;
His blood now cleanses me from sin,
Dear Jesus now He sets me free.

All worlds His glorious power confess,
His wisdom all His works express;
But oh! His love what tongue can tell?
My Jesus has done all things well.

Refrain

How sovereign, powerful and free
Has been His love to sinful me!
He plucked me from the jaws of hell—
My Jesus has done all things well.

Refrain

I spurned His grace, I broke His laws,
And then he undertook my cause;
To save me though I did rebel,
My Jesus has done all things well.

Refrain

And since my soul hath known His love,
What blessings hath he made me prove!
Mercy which doth all praise excel,
My Jesus has done all things well.

Refrain

Whene’er my Savior or my God,
Hath on me laid His gentle rod;
I know in all that has befell,
That Jesus has done all things well.

Refrain

Though many a flaming fiery dart,
Attempt their level at my heart;
With this I all his rage repel—
My Jesus has done all things well.

Refrain

Sometimes the Lord His face doth hide,
To make me pray, and kill my pride;
Yet on my heart it still doth dwell,
That Jesus has done all things well.

Refrain

Soon I shall pass this vale of death,
And in His arms resign my breath:
Yet then my happy soul shall tell,
How Jesus has done all things well.

Refrain

And when to those bright worlds I rise,
And join the anthem with the skies;
Above the rest, this note shall swell,
My Jesus has done all things well.
