HYMN CLXXV.

7.7.7.7.7.7

James Montgomery

The first of all the Commandments.--Mark, xii. 30.

I will love the Lord; for He

From eternity loved me;

I will love the Lord, who gave

His own Son my soul to save,

And sends down, in love divine,

His good Spirit to strive with mine.

I will love the Son; for He

Loved, and gave Himself for me;

I will love Him on his cross,

And for Him count all things loss;

I will love Him on his throne,

When I know as I am known.

I will love the Spirit; for He

Deigns in love to dwell with me;

I will love Him on my knees,

Helping mine infirmities,

Till my joyful lips record

"Abba, Father!" "Jesus, Lord!"

Thee, o'er all for ever blest,

One, true, only God confest,

I would love, with heart and mind,

Soul and strength;--but what can bind,

O my God! my love to thee!

This alone, Thy love to me.
