Representative Text

1 Because of His love the Savior died,
For sin of the world was crucified;
With His own blood our ransom paid,
And for our souls deliv’rance made.

Because of His love, His sacrifice!
Because of His love! O what a price!
He suffered and died, was crucified,
Because of His love, because of His love.

2 Because of His love, O blessèd thought,
Were wonderful deeds of mercy wrought;
The wind and wave obeyed His will—
Hushed by His wondrous Peace—be still. [Refrain]

3 Because of His love, His blest command,
We’ll send the glad word to every land;
His name, above all names we’ll sing,
And crown Him Savior, Priest and King. [Refrain]
