GOD'S LOVE AND MINE




I love Thee, Lord;
yet ‘tis no love of mine
That goeth forth
to that great heart of Thine;
‘Tis Thine own love
which Thou hast given me
Returning back,
O loving Lord, to Thee.


Oh, help me, Lord,
to take, by grace Divine,
Yet more and more
of that great love of Thine;
That day by day
my heart may give to Thee
A deeper love,
and growing constantly.


The earth absorbs
the soft, refreshing rain,
And sends it back
in flow’rs and fruits again;
So I receive Thy love
so rich and free,
And send it back
in joy and praise to Thee.


The moon receives
the sun’s bright, golden light,
And gives it forth
to cheer the darksome night;
So I receive the rays of love Divine,
And with them cheer
this weary world of Thine.


‘Tis by Thy love
that I can love and bless
The foes who seek
to blast my happiness;
Can e’en rejoice,
when bearing wrong and shame,
Thou deem’st me meet
to suffer for Thy name.


Naught by Thy love
can satisfy my heart,
Constrain my will
from self and sin to part:
In love so great
Thou giv’st Thyself to me;
For Thou art Love—
to all eternity.
