Let me love Thee; come, revealing All Thy love has done for me; Help my heart, so unbelieving, By the sight of Calvary; Let me see Thy love despising All the shame my sins had brought, By Thy torments realizing What a price my pardon bought.
Refrain: Let me love Thee, Savior, Take my heart forever; Nothing but Thy favor My soul can satisfy.
Let me love Thee; Thou art claiming Every feeling of my soul; Let that love, in pow’r prevailing, Render Thee my life, my all; For life’s burdens, they are easy, And life’s sorrows lose their sting, If they’re carried, Lord, to please Thee, If their pain Thy smile should win.
Let me love Thee; I am gladdest When I’m loving Thee, the best; For in sunshine or in sadness I can find in Thee a rest; But without Thee life is fading, Treasureless its choicest flow’rs; Taken are its gifts eternal; Left, its empty passing hours.
Let me love Thee; love is mighty, Swaying realms of deed and thought; By it I shall walk uprightly, I shall serve Thee as I ought; Love will soften every sorrow, Love will lighten every care, Love unquestioning will follow, Love will triumph, love will dare.
