My Song Is Love Unknown

Posted | 0 comments

   D       A      G
My song is love unknown,
   D        F#m     G
My Savior’s love to me;
     Em     F#m      Bm
Love to the loveless shown,
                E      A
That they might lovely be.
  C      Em      G      Bm
O who am I, that for my sake
   D                       A         D
My Lord should take, frail flesh and die?
Christ came from heaven's throne
Salvation to bestow;
But people scorned, and none
The longed-for Christ would know:
But O! my Friend, my Friend indeed,
Who at my need His life did spend.
Sometimes they strew His way,
And His sweet praises sing;
Resounding all the way
Hosannas to their King:
Then “Crucify!” is all their breath,
And for His death they thirst and cry.
They rise, and needs will have
My dear Lord made away;
A murderer they saved,
The Prince of life they slay,
Yet cheerful He to suffering goes,
That He His foes from thence might free.
Here might I stay and sing,
No story so divine;
Never was love, dear King!
Never was grief like Thine.
This is my Friend, in Whose sweet praise
I all my days could gladly spend.

Lyrics: Crossman
