I know I love Thee better, Lord

Verse 1:
I know I love Thee better, Lord,
Than any earthly joy;
For Thou hast given me the peace
Which nothing can destroy.

Refrain:
The half has never yet been told,
Of love so full and free!
The half has never yet been told,
The blood—it cleanseth me!

Verse 2:
I know that Thou art nearer still
Than any earthly throng;
And sweeter is the thought of Thee
Than any lovely song.

Verse 3:
Thou hast put gladness in my heart;
Then may I well be glad!
Without the secret of Thy love
I could not but be sad.

Verse 4:
O Saviour, precious Saviour, mine!
What will Thy presence be,
If such a life of joy can crown
Our walk on earth with Thee?

Frances R. Havergal and H.E. Hudson
