709. God Loves Me Dearly

1 God loves me dearly,
Grants me salvation;
God loves me dearly,
Loves even me.

Refrain:
Therefore I'll say again:
God loves me dearly,
God loves me dearly,
Loves even me.

2 I was in bondage,
sin, death, and darkness;
God's love was working
to make me free. [Refrain]

3 He sent forth Jesus,
my dear Redeemer;
He sent forth Jesus
and set me free. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, my Savior,
Himself did offer;
Jesus, my Savior,
Paid all I owed. [Refrain]
