Full Text

1 Love divine, how sweet the sound!
May the theme on earth abound:
My the hearts of saints below,
With the sacred rapture glow!

2 Love amazing, large and free,
Love unknown, to think on me!
Let that love upon me shine,
Saviour, with its beams divine.

3 Better than earth's gilded toys,
Or an age of carnal joys;
Better far than Ophir's gold,
Love that never can be told.

4 Better than this life of mine,
Saviour, is thy love divine:
Drop the veil, and let me see
Rivers of this love in thee.

5 While in Mesech's tents I stay,
Love divine shall tune my lay;
When I soar to bliss above
Still I'll praise a Saviour's love.
