144a. I love Jesus

1 Hark! the Gospel news is sounding,
Christ has suffer'd on the tree;
Stream of mercy are abounding,
Grace for all is rich and free.

I love Jesus, hallelujah,
I love Jesus, yes, I do!
I love Jesus, he's my Saviour,
Jesus smiles and loves me, too.

2 Oh, escape to yonder mountain,
Now begin to watch and pray;
Christ invites you to the fountain,
Come and wash your sins away. [Chorus]

3 Grace is flowing like a river,
Millions there have been supplied;
Still it flows as fresh as ever,
From the Saviour's wounded side. [Chorus]

4 Christ alone shall be our portion,
Soon we hope to meet above,
Bathe in the exhaustless ocean
Of the great Redeemer's love. [Chorus]
