Verse 1:
G2/B    A/C♯        D      A/C♯    Bm
          O perfect love O perfect sacrifice,
            G   D/F♯            Em7    A
fountain of life poured out for me.
                 D         A/C♯     Bm
What heights and depths of heaven's mercy,
            G  D/A         D
the faithfulness that I believe.
            A
And to whom shall I run?
            G
And in whom shall I hide?
     Bm           D2/F♯    Em    D/F♯
Only You hold the truth I desire.
G2            D        A/C♯         Bm
    O perfect love, my prayer shall ever be
    G     A      D
to be found in Jesus.
Verse 2:
G2/B    A/C♯        D       A/C♯    Bm
          O perfect love, O perfect mystery,
             G  D/F♯        Em7    A
You were condemned but I go free.
              D         A/C♯   Bm
What truth to know that I can rest upon:
             G  D/A           D
Your perfect love has covered me.
             A
And what can this heart know,
             G
and what can this heart tell,
       Bm             D2/F♯    Em    D/F♯
but of grace that has rescued me?
G2            D        A/C♯         Bm
    O perfect love, my prayer shall ever be
    G     A      D
to be found in Jesus.
Verse 3:
G2/B    A/C♯        D       A/C♯   Bm
          O perfect love forever   I shall sing
            G   D/F♯             Em7    A
of heaven's gates flung wide for me,
              D         A/C♯     Bm
where fear of death and tears of hopelessness
              G  D/A     D
are swallowed up in victory.
                A
And what praise shall be sung
             G
still to the Holy One;
       Bm         D2/F♯    Em    D/F♯
to the Saviour, Redeemer and King?
G2            D        A/C♯      Bm
    O perfect love, my song will ever be:
    G    A       D
'I am found in Jesus.'

O PERFECT LOVE, O PERFECT SACRIFICE,
Fountain of life poured out for me.
What heights and depths of heaven's mercy,
The faithfulness that I believe.
And to whom shall I run?
And in whom shall I hide?
Only You hold the truth I desire.
O perfect love, my prayer shall ever be
To be found in Jesus.

O perfect love, O perfect mystery,
You were condemned, but I go free.
What truth to know that I can rest upon:
Your perfect love has covered me.
And what can this heart know?

And what can this heart tell?
But of grace that has rescued me.
O perfect love,
My prayer shall ever be
To be found in Jesus.

O perfect love, forever I shall sing
Of heaven's gates flung wide for me.
Where fear of death and tears of
hopelessness
Are swallowed up in victory.
And what praise shall be sung
Still to the Holy One;
To the Savior, Redeemer and King.
O perfect love,
My song will ever be:
'I am found in Jesus.'
