True love

If there’s such love in the human race,
To meet all our need with wondrous grace,
Firm and endless and free,
Like the high mount and sea,
Our dear Lord need not a human be;
In the dark, He has heard,
How I sigh, how I pine,
On the way, He has seen,
How I wander in life.
In His love to us He has drawn nigh,
Coming to us from His throne on high.
Seeking me without rest,
Thirst and hunger did taste,
On the cross the Lord paid all my debt,
He arose from the grave,
All the sinners He saved,
Joined with me, He filled me with His faith.
Love I’ve found within the human race,
Of all love in heav’n and earth the best,
Firm and endless and free,
Like the high mount and sea,
True and precious, through eternity;
He’s with me all my days,
Leading me all the way;
O my Lord, O my love,
“I love You!” ’Tis my prayer.

Stanzas 1 and 3 share the same tune.

The Lord is the One who comforts me in all the depressions that I have. Every situation is leading me to the end because I have turned away from Him. But the result is always the loving self and presence of the Lord.

I like the lyrics and the melody. I listen to the song in my office, and it helps me to turn to the Lord.
