More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Behold, the Best, the Greatest Gift

Behold, the best, the greatest gift of everlasting love!

Tune: ST. ANDREW (Tans'ur)
Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

1 Behold, the best, the greatest gift
of everlasting love!
Behold, the pledge of peace below,
and perfect bliss above!

2 The Savior died and rose again
triumphant from the grave,
and pleads our cause at God's right hand,
omnipotent to save.

3 Who then can e'er divide us more
from Jesus and his love,
or break the sacred chain that binds
the earth to heav'n above?

4 Let troubles rise, and terrors frown
and days of darkness fall;
through him all dangers we'll defy,
and more than conquer all.

5 Nor death, nor life, nor earth, nor hell,
nor time's destroying sway
can e'er efface us from his heart
or make his love decay.

6 Each future four that love will bless
as it has blessed the past:
he loved us from the first of time;
he loves us to the last.
