The Love Of Christ Is Rich And Free

William Gadsby

Verse 1
The love of Christ is rich and free
Fixed on His own eternally
Nor earth, nor hell, can it remove
Long as He lives, His own He'll love

Verse 2`
His loving heart engaged to be
Their everlasting Surety
'Twas love that took their cause in hand
And love maintains it to the end

Love cannot from its post withdraw
Nor death, nor hell, nor sin, nor law
Can turn the Surety's heart away
He'll love His own to endless day

Verse 3
Love has redeemed His sheep with blood
And love will bring them safe to God
Love calls them all from death to life
And love will finish all their strife

Verse 4
He loves through every changing scene
Nor aught from Him can Zion wean
Not all the wanderings of her heart
Can make His love for her depart

Verse 5
At death, beyond the grave, He'll love
In endless bliss, His own shall prove
The blazing glory of that love
Which never could from them remove
