Pure Perfect Love

by Dee Lorraine

There is no love like Jesus’ love
Pure and perfect, sent from above
Carnal lovers will leave you
Spouses will grieve you
Parents will forsake you
Siblings will hate you
Children will ignore you
And friends don’t always understand.
But the pure, perfect love of Jesus Christ
Is always there, so give Him your hand.
Accept His pure, perfect love; it’s always true.
Twenty-four/seven/three-hundred-sixty-five
Jesus’ pure, perfect love is there for you.

So much pain and doubt in my heart
Sin, failure, and fear were tearing me apart
No one seemed to care
My blanket of illusions was threadbare
Alone in my sorrow
In despair about tomorrow
No love to steal, beg or borrow
About to be swallowed
By the Jordan River, deep and wide
How could I make it to the other side?

I know the grass is greener
On salvation’s side of the river
So why is it so hard for me to cross?
Oh, God, please tell me all is not lost!
Please tell me all is not lost!

With Jesus’ loving arms, extended
My sins, sorrows, fears ended
Washed away by Jesus’ Blood
Cast out by His pure, perfect love
New life in Christ, thank God I’ve found
One-hundred-eighty-degree turnaround
What I thought was lost, He has restored
I was adrift by the ship, but now I’m on board!

Because there is no love like Jesus’ love
Pure and perfect, sent from above
Carnal lovers will leave you
Spouses will grieve you
Parents will forsake you
Siblings will hate you
Children will ignore you
And friends don’t always understand.
But the pure, perfect love of Jesus Christ
Is always there, so give Him your hand.
Accept His pure, perfect love; it’s always true.
Twenty-four/seven/three-hundred-sixty-five
Jesus’ pure, perfect love is there for you.
