Lyrics

At the cross, our sins con­fess­ing,
Humbly we would look above,
Seeking ev­ery pro­mised bless­ing,
Purchased by re­deem­ing love.

Refrain

Love be­yond all hu­man mea­sure,
Source of ev­ery last­ing plea­sure,
Hope of ne­ver fail­ing trea­sure,
Sing, O sing re­deem­ing love!

Love that sent the migh­ty Sav­ior,
Cares for all our dai­ly needs;
Happy in His ten­der fa­vor,
Let us fol­low where He leads.

Refrain

When the beams of joy are glow­ing,
’Tis His good­ness they pro­claim;
When the win­try winds are blow­ing,
Love di­vine abides the same.

Refrain

Blessèd faith, the bil­lows breast­ing,
Faith that sees His face above;
Glad the soul on Je­sus rest­ing,
Saved by His re­deem­ing love.
