Psalms, Hymns, & Spiritual Songs: “My Song Is Love Unknown”

My Song Is Love UnknownIn Ephesians 5:15-21, we are given directions on how to properly live as Christians. One of these is to sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart.

Each Monday, I share a song from history or present day that present a high view of God, praise Him, and teaches solid doctrine.

My Song Is Love Unknown

by Samuel Crossman (1664)

My song is love unknown,
my Savior’s love to me,
love to the loveless shown,
that they might lovely be.
O who am I, that for my sake
my Lord should take frail flesh and die?
My Song Is Love Unknown
He came from His blest throne,
salvation to bestow;
but men cared not, and none
the longed for Christ would know.
But oh, my Friend, my Friend indeed,
who at my need His life did spend.

Sometimes they strew His way,
and His sweet praises sing;
resounding all the day
hosannas to their King.
Then, “Crucify!” is all their breath,
and for His death they thirst and cry.

Why, what hath my Lord done?
What makes this rage and spite?
He made the lame to run,
He gave the blind their sight.
Sweet injuries! Yet all His deeds
their hatred feeds; they ‘gainst Him rise.

They rise, and needs will have
my dear Lord made away;
a murderer they save,
the Prince of Life they slay.
Yet willing He to suff’ring goes,
that He His foes from thence might flee.

In life, no house, no home my Lord
on earth might have:
in death, no friendly tomb
but what a stranger gave.
What may I say?
Heaven was His home,
but mine the tomb wherein He lay.

Here might I stay and sing,
no story so divine;
never was love, dear King,
never was grief like Thine.
This is my Friend, in Whose sweet praise
I all my days would gladly spend.
