VERSE 1:
My song is love unknown,
My Savior’s love for me;
Love to the loveless shown,
That they might lovely be.
Oh who am I, that for my sake
My Lord should take, frail flesh and die?

CHORUS:
My song is love, my song is love unknown,
My Savior's love for me; love to the loveless shown,
That they might lovely be, that they might lovely be.

VERSE 2:
Sometimes they line His way,
And His sweet praises sing;
Resounding all the day
Hosannas to their King:
Then “Crucify!” is all their breath,
And for His death they thirst and cry.

CHORUS:
My song is love, my song is love unknown,
My Savior's love for me; love to the loveless shown,
That they might lovely be, that they might lovely be.

VERSE 3:
The Blessed One they curse, and send the Lamb away;
A guilty man they choose, the Prince of Life they slay.
Yet willing He to suff'ring goes, that He His foes from death might save.

CHORUS:
My song is love, my song is love unknown,
My Savior's love for me; love to the loveless shown,
That they might lovely be, that they might lovely be.

VERSE 4:
Here will I stay and sing,
Of Whom my soul adores;
Never was love, dear King!
Never was grief like Yours.
This is my Friend, in Whose sweet praise
I all my days could gladly spend.

CHORUS:
My song is love, my song is love unknown,
My Savior's love for me; love to the loveless shown,
That they might lovely be, that they might lovely be.
