Oh, the precious love of Jesus,
Growing sweeter day by day,
Turning all my heart so joyous,
To a heav’nly melody.

Refrain

Christ is precious, Christ is precious;
In life’s journey He will lead thee;
Christ is precious, Christ is precious;
He will lead thee all the way.

But we can not know the fullness
Of the Savior’s wondrous love,
Till we see and know His glory,
In the heav’nly home above.

Refrain

Come and taste the love of Jesus,
At His feet thy burdens lay;
Trust Him with thy grief and sorrow,
Bear this joyful song away.
