Hymn/Song Information

My God I love Thee Not because I hope




My God, I love Thee; not because
I hope for heaven thereby,
Nor yet because who love Thee not
May eternally die.

E'en so I love Thee and will love,
And in Thy praise will sing,
Solely because Thou art my God
And my Eternal King.
Solely because Thou art My God
And my eternal King,
Thou art my God
And my Eternal King.



Thou, O my Jesus, Thou didst me
Upon the cross embrace;
For me didst bear the nails and spear,
And manifold disgrace.

E'en so I love Thee and will love,
And in Thy praise will sing,
Solely because Thou art my God
And my Eternal King.
Solely because Thou art My God
And my eternal King,
Thou art my God
And my Eternal King.



And griefs and torments numberless,
And sweat of agony;
E’en death itself; and all for man
Who was Thine enemy.

E'en so I love Thee and will love,
And in Thy praise will sing,
Solely because Thou art my God
And my Eternal King.
Solely because Thou art My God
And my eternal King,
Thou art my God
And my Eternal King.



Then why, O blessèd Jesus Christ
Should I not love Thee well?
Not for the hope of winning heaven,
Nor of escaping hell.

E'en so I love Thee and will love,
And in Thy praise will sing,
Solely because Thou art my God
And my Eternal King.
Solely because Thou art My God
And my eternal King,
Thou art my God
And my Eternal King.



Not with the hope of gaining aught,
Nor seeking a reward,
But as Thyself hast lovèd me,
O everlasting Lord!

E'en so I love Thee and will love,
And in Thy praise will sing,
Solely because Thou art my God
And my Eternal King.
Solely because Thou art My God
And my eternal King,
Thou art my God
And my Eternal King.
