1. I believe that Jesus died for me
A sacrifice beyond my understanding
Offering himself in place of me
O! How can I repay the Lord?

Father to you we offer (oh)!
Jesus to you this gift we bring
Holy Ghost accept this offering
Which we offer up to you.

2. I believe all that the scripture said
About the love beyond my understanding
Forgiveness beyond comprehension
O! How can I repay the Lord?

3. Teach me lord to love you as I ought
O! Teach me lord to love you all my life time
Spreading love wherever I find myself
O! How can I repay the Lord?
