Once my way was dark and dreary,
For my heart was full of sin,
But the sky is bright and cheery,
Since the fullness of His love came in.

I can never tell how much I love Him,
I can never tell His love for me,
For it passeth human measure,
Like a deep, unfathomed sea;
íTis redeeming love in Christ my Savior,
In my soul the heavínly joys begin;
And I live for Jesus only,
Since the fullness of His love came in.

There is grace for all the lowly,
Grace to keep the trusting soul:
Powír to cleanse and make me holy,
Jesus shall my yielded life control.

I can never tell how much I love Him,
I can never tell His love for me,
For it passeth human measure,
Like a deep, unfathomed sea;
íTis redeeming love in Christ my Savior,
In my soul the heavínly joys begin;
And I live for Jesus only,
Since the fullness of His love came in.

Let me spread abroad the story,
Other souls to Jesus win;
For the cross is now my glory,
Since the fullness of His love came in.

I can never tell how much I love Him,
I can never tell His love for me,
For it passeth human measure,
Like a deep, unfathomed sea;
íTis redeeming love in Christ my Savior,
In my soul the heavínly joys begin;
And I live for Jesus only,
Since the fullness of His love came in.
