    1. The love of Christ is rich and free;
    Fixed on His own eternally;
    Nor earth, nor hell, can it remove;
    Long as He lives, His own He’ll love.

    2. His loving heart engaged to be
    Their everlasting Surety;
    ’Twas love that took their cause in hand,
    And love maintains it to the end.

    Chorus: Love cannot from its post withdraw;
    Nor death, nor hell, nor sin, nor law,
    Can turn the Surety’s heart away;
    He’ll love His own to endless day.

    3. Love has redeemed His sheep with blood;
    And love will bring them safe to God;
    Love calls them all from death to life;
    And love will finish all their strife.

    4. He loves through every changing scene,
    Nor aught from Him can Zion wean;
    Not all the wanderings of her heart
    Can make His love for her depart.
    (Repeat chorus)

    5. At death, beyond the grave, He’ll love;
    In endless bliss, His own shall prove
    The blazing glory of that love
    Which never could from them remove.

    I don't know who is singing this (my government network blocks youtube) but the Sandra McCracken version is so great! Check it out.

    It's good to see people still using songs from Gadsby's collection of hymns.
