1. Are the burdens you carry too heavy to bear?
Does the weight of your sin fill your heart with despair?
Go to Jesus for aid, He will answer your prayer;
There is no one who loves you so.

Refrain
There is no one who loves you like Jesus,
No one who loves you so;
For the cross you lay down
He will give you a crown;
There is no one who loves you so.

2. Do you think in your sorrow you suffer alone?
All your grief and your sadness to Him are made known;
He hath never forsaken or turned from His own;
There is no one who loves you so. [Refrain]

3. He alone can redeem you from darkness and woe;
He will wash all your sins till they’re white as the snow,
And His wonderful grace you may constantly know;
There is no one who loves you so. [Refrain]
