    Verse 1
    O perfect life of love!
    All, all is finished now,
    All that He left His throne above
    To do for us below

    Verse 2
    No work is left undone
    Of all the Father willed;
    His toils and sorrows, one by one,
    The Scriptures have fulfilled

    Verse 3
    No pain that we can share
    But He has felt its smart;
    All forms of human grief and care
    Have pierced that tender heart

    Verse 4
    And on His thorn-crowned head,
    And on His sinless soul,
    Our sins in all their guilt were laid,
    That He might make us whole

    Verse 5
    In perfect love He dies;
    For me He dies, for me!
    O all-atoning Sacrifice,
    I cling by faith to Thee

    Verse 6
    In every time of need,
    Before the judgement throne,
    Thy work, O Lamb of God, I'll plead,
    Thy merits, not my own

    Verse 7
    Yet work, O Lord, in me,
    As Thou for me hast wrought;
    And let my love the answer be
    To grace Thy love has brought
