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
