Lyrics

There’s a love that can not fade,
Nor thro’ sun­shine nor thro’ shade,
But re­mains the same tho’ king­doms rise and fall;
It is giv­en free of cost,
That no soul need e’er be lost;
’Tis the love of Je­sus—’tis the best of all.

Refrain

His love is al­ways true,
His skies are al­ways blue,
Flow’rs are bloom­ing in His sun­shine,
Made for me and you;
His love is al­ways true,
Shining the long days thro’
Jesus is a friend worth hav­ing,
His love is true.

There’s a love that knows no fear,
For the ones His heart holds dear;
And He watch­es o’er and keeps them in His care;
’Round them His pro­tect­ing arm,
Where they’re safe and free from harm;
’Tis the love that ev­ery one may free­ly share.

Refrain

There’s a love that ne­ver dies,
And it reach­es to the skies;
It will shine for­ev­er Heav’n’s un­set­ting sun;
To us all ’tis giv­en free
Now, and thro’ eter­ni­ty;
’Tis the love of Je­sus—true and on­ly One.
