Lyrics

Sing, O sing the love of Jesus,
Boundless, deep unmeasured love;
Let the soul inspiring chorus
Ring thro’ all the courts above.

Refrain

Sing, O sing the love of Jesus,
Heav’n and earth repeat the strain;
Sing, O sing, till every nation
Echoes on the sweet refrain.

Sing, O sing the love of Jesus,
Render hearty thanks and praise;
While He gives us life and being,
Praise Him on through endless days.

Refrain

Angel lips will join our anthem,
Thro’ the sky the sound prolong;
Heav’nly hosts take up the chorus,
And with rapture swell the song.

Refrain

Power and might and bliss eternal
Now and evermore shall be
Unto Him who loved and saved us
With a love so full and free.
