Lord Jesus! to tell of Thy love
 
Our souls shall forever delight,
 
And sing of Thy glory above,
 
In praises by day and by night.
 
Wherever we follow Thee, Lord,
 
Admiring, adoring, we see
 
That love which was stronger than death
 
Flow out without limit, and free.
Song of Solomon 8:6
2
Descending from glory on high,
 
With men Thy delight was to dwell,
 
Contented, our Surety to die,
 
Nor e'er didst the vilest repel.
 
Enduring the grief and the shame,
 
Thou barest our sins on the cross,
 
Oh! who would not boast of this love,
 
And count the world's glory but loss?
John 6:38; Proverbs 8:31; Hebrews 7:22; Luke 7:34,37-39,44-48; Hebrews 12:2; 1 Peter 2:24; Philippians 3:8
“Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.” (Song of Solomon 8:6)
“For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” (John 6:38)
“Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.” (Proverbs 8:31)
