3131. It Was His Love

1. It was His love that reached my soul,
It was His grace that made me whole,
And now He keeps me day by day,
And safely leads me all the way.

O wondrous and amazing love!
O grace that saved and ransomed me!
My heart and life shall sing of Thee
In time and in eternity.

2. It was His love, so boundless, free,
That moved the Lord to pardon me
And own me for His ransomed child,
Redeemed, renewed, and reconciled. [Refrain]

3. It was His love impelled my heart
To turn from self and sin apart,
And find in Him the wondrous power
A Christian life to live each hour. [Refrain]

4. It was His great amazing love
So well displayed from Heav’n above,
That brought to me such peace and rest,
And made me so supremely blest. [Refrain]
