We Dearly Love Our Savior


We dearly love our Savior
And can but love him thus;
We love him, yes, we love him,
Because he first loved us.

Chorus:
We love him, yes we love him,
Because he first loved us,
We love him, yes we love him,
Because he first loved us.

O him who loved and saved us,
While still his enemies,
We’ll honor by forgiving
Our foes as he did his. [Chorus]

Said Jesus, if ye love me
Then my commandments do;
O love ye one another,
As I have loved you. [Chorus]

The way of life is Jesus,
In him then may we trust;
We love our dear Redeemer,
Because he first loved us. [Chorus]
