1 Behold what love the Father hath
On guilty men bestowed,
That we, who children are of wrath,
Should children be of God.
2 O how beyond expression great
His love in Christ doth shine!
‘Tis like Himself, the Eternal God,
Past knowledge, all divine.
3 Behold, for fallen, guilty man
The Lord of glory dies;
Lays down His life us to redeem,
A precious sacrifice.
4 Peace and goodwill are now to man
Most gloriously displayed,
And life eternal we obtain
From God in Christ our Head.
