Lover of the Lord 475

Tune: Arranged by Robert H. Reeves, 1869
Lyrics: Charles Wesley, 1749
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Lovers of pleasure more than God,
For you He suffered pain;
For you the Saviour spilt His blood,
And shall He bleed in vain?


O you must be a lover of the Lord,
Or you can't go to heaven when you die.

The God of love to earth He came,
That you might come to heav'n,
Believe, believe in Jesus' name,
And all your sins forgiv'n.
