William J. Kirkpatrick (1838–1921)


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


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.


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.


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.
