You Ask Me Why The Name Of Christ Is Eve

You ask me why the name of Christ
Is ever dear to me,
Why I desire with him at last,
To spend eternity.

Redeeming love, redeeming love,
I know no other plea,
‘Twas on the cross my Saviour died,
A sacrifice for me.

You ask me why I love him so,
And offer him my heart,
Why I believe my Lord, and I
Will never, never part. [Refrain]

You ask me why I long to serve
My Master and my King,
Why I desire to speak his praise,
And of his mercy sing. [Refrain]

You ask me why I know my name
On high is written down
Why I expect in heav’n some day
To wear a golden crown. [Refrain]
