140 (7.7.7.7.)

Love divine, how sweet the sound!

May the theme on earth abound:

May the hearts of saints below

With the sacred rapture glow.

Love amazing, large and free,

Love unknown, to think on me;

Let that love upon me shine,

Saviour, with its beams divine.

Better than earth's gilded toys,

Or an age of carnal joys;

Better far than Ophir's gold,

Love that never can be told.

Better than this life of mine,

Saviour, is Thy love divine:

Drop the veil, and let me see

Rivers of this love in Thee.
