Original Key: D


Verse 1:
     D                 Bm
What love is this that always gives,
    G                D
And never counts the cost,
                      Bm
That beats within the heart of God
     G               A    D/A    A7/G
With passion for the lost;
     D/F♯             Gsus2   G
That lifts me from my wretchedness
     D/A               F♯7/A♯ 
And clothes me in His righteousness?
Bm      G   D
Everlasting love,
Bm   Gm         D
Everlasting     love,
Bm      G   D/A
Everlasting love,
   F♯7/A♯  Bm  Gm     D     Gm    D    Gm
Be my      joy and my light.
Verse 2:
     D                 Bm
What love is this that purges fear
    G             D
And cancels every sin,
                    Bm
Yet loves enough to lead me through
    G              A    D/A    A7/G
The fires of discipline?
     D/F♯          Gsus2    G
The suffering that works in me
     D/A        F♯7/A♯
 The jewel of humility:
Bm       G  D
Everlasting love,
Bm     Gm       D
Everlasting    love,
Bm      G   D/A
Everlasting love,
   F♯7/A♯  Bm  Gm      D    G/A
Be my      comfort and guide.
D  A7/D  D7     Gmaj7  G6
Gm         E7  C9
D  A7/D  D7/F♯  Gmaj7  G6
Gm         E7  A7sus4
Verse 3:
     D                  Bm
What love is this, what priceless gift
   G                D
So freely poured on me?
                     Bm
If all the wealth of earth was mine,
    G             A    D/A    A7/G
No richer would I be.
    D/F♯               Gsus2    G
The greatest prize, to know the King,
    D/A            F♯7/A♯ 
And know that I am loved by Him:
     Bm       G  D     Bm    Gm       D
With everlasting love, everlasting   love,
 Bm     G   D     Bm    Gm        D
Everlasting love, everlasting    love,
Bm      G   D     Bm    Gm        D
Everlasting love, everlasting    love,
Bm      G   D/A
Everlasting love,
   F♯7/A♯  Bm   Gm     D
Be my      hope and my light.
D  A7/D  D7   Gmaj7  G6
Gm         E7  C9

WHAT LOVE IS THIS THAT ALWAYS GIVES,
And never counts the cost,
That beats within the heart of God
With passion for the lost;
That lifts me from my wretchedness
And clothes me in His righteousness?
Everlasting love,
Everlasting love,
Everlasting love,
Be my joy and my light.

What love is this that purges fear
And cancels every sin,
Yet loves enough to lead me through
The fires of diskipline?
The suffering that works in me
The jewel of humility:
Everlasting love,
Everlasting love,
Everlasting love,
Be my comfort and guide

What love is this,
What priceless gift
So freely poured on me?
If all the wealth of earth was mine,
No richer would I be.
The greatest prize, to know the King,
And know that I am loved by Him:
Everlasting love,
Everlasting love,
Everlasting love,
Be my hope and my light.
