Sweet The Theme Of Jesus' Love

by Albert Midlane

Tune: Mozart 7s

Tune: Clayton West

1 SWEET the theme of Jesus' love!
Sweet that theme all themes above;
Love, unmerited and free,
Our triumphant song shall be.

2 Love so vast that nought can bound,
Love too deep for thought to sound,
Love which brought the Lord of all
To the wormwood and the gall.

3 Love which led Him to the cross,
Bearing there unmeasured loss;
Love which brought Him to the gloom
Of the cold and darksome tomb.

4 Love which made Him hence arise
Far above the starry skies;
There, with tender, loving care,
All His people's griefs to share.

5 Jesus, Lord, accept our praise;
Now our hearts to Thee we raise,
Though we know Thy boundless love
Earthly praise is far above.

The tune sung at Canterbury 2011 was not 'Clayton West' but 'Mozart' as #123 and #131.
