8.7.8.7.


1
'TIS the truest joy and blessing
Jesus as our Lord to know,
Here to yield Him full allegiance,
Follow in His steps below.
2
With a perfect love He loves us,
Nought its ceaseless flow can stay;
For His pleasure He has bought us,
He Himself is ours for aye.
3
Never shall His love, so faithful,
Of our needs forgetful be:
'Tis a source that never faileth,
Inexhaustible and free.
4
If He claims our hearts' affections
Unreservèd as our own,
'Tis because of love unchanging,
That in Him was first made known.
