Be Thou My Love For Thee

Be thou my love for thee;

Today tomorrow and into eternity.

For your love constrains me to thee;

A love that set my Savior to be cursed on a tree.

Be thou my love for thee;

For your love is the love that sets my soul free.

You came at your appointed time and died,

Leaving the fragrance of your love still fresh and new as the day you, my Lord were crucified.

Be thou my love for thee;

Let it be set on your love that gives me eyes to see.

When once in my sin like a prisoner was chained,

Your love searched me out and your death broke sins reigns.

Be thou my love for thee;

A love that is set on you as you set your love on me from time long ago into eternity.

Your cross knows no limits your love knows no bounds;

My Savior who humbled himself to wear a thorny crown.

His pierced hands reach through the ages for His children to free;

His heavenly throne He left to take our penalty.

Be thou my love for Thee;

A love to my Lord that is sustained by His love for me,

Christ who is risen, glorified and sets men free.

May He be lifted up for all to see.

Be thou my love for Thee;

For thou Lord, has first loved me.

“A Wretch Like Me” – David D. Hanson
