Verse 1My song is love unknown, my Saviour’s love to meLove to the loveless shown that they might lovely beO who am I, that for my sakeMy Lord should take frail flesh and die?
Verse 2He came from his blest throne, salvation to bestowBut men made strange, and none the longed for Christ would knowBut O my friend, my friend indeedWho at my need his life did spend
Verse 3Sometimes they strew his way and his sweet praises singResounding all the day hosannas to their kingThen “Crucify!” is all their breathAnd for his death they thirst and cry
Verse 4Here might I stay and sing no story so divineNever was love, dear King! Never was grief like thineThis is my friend, in whose sweet praiseI all my days could gladly spend
