Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)


I sing be­cause I love Him—
Because to earth He came
All those to save who trust Him,
From end­less death and shame.


I sing be­cause I love Him,
Because He died for me;
For this I shall adore Him
Through all eter­ni­ty.

I sing be­cause I love Him;
From sin He set me free;
He taught my soul to praise Him—
Filled it with me­lo­dy.


I sing be­cause I love Him,
For keep­ing me in peace;
Until my eyes be­hold Him,
My song shall ne­ver cease.
