Tender love of Jesus, so lovely and so pure;
Flowing thru this vessel to strengthen, fill and cure
All the doubt and turmoil that’s caused by sin and shame,
Making me a witness to His most holy name.
Yes, love, Christ’s love, pure love, great love;
With joy my heart is singing, the things of life grow dim,
For Christ is love!

Thru the passing ages flowed down this love divine,
Lighting men and angels and causing them to shine,
What a heav’nly radiance, His glory from above,
Sunshine of the Spirit, the holy light of love.
Yes, love, Christ’s love, pure love, great love;
With joy my heart is singing, the things of life grow dim,
For Christ is love!

Tender love from Heaven in Jesus came to live,
Showing us how God loves, and then His life to give;
Came to be a servant, with God’s great pow’r and peace
Leads us to the Father, whose love will never cease.
God’s love, sweet love from Heav’n above.
This love is like an ocean, its waves are reaching me;
Christ came this love to be.

Love is mine in Jesus, this babe of Bethlehem,
Prince of Peace forever, the Christ, the great I AM.
Angels gave the message, and shepherds passed it on,
Love will be the story when Heav’n and earth are gone.
God’s love, sweet love from Heav’n above.
This love is like an ocean, its waves are reaching me;
Christ came this love to be.
