Behold What Love

Representative Text

1 Behold what love, yes, love divine,
The Father showed to thee,
In that He gave His only Son,
Thy soul from sin to free.

Such love cannot be fathomed,
’Tis like the boundless sea;
His broken heart so wounded,
Is bleeding now for thee.

2 He gave His life to make thee whole,
He shed His blood for all,
To heal the body, save the soul—
Then come, for mercy call. [Refrain]

3 Oh, depths of love to mortals lost,
He suffered on the tree;
Our only hope of heaven cost
His blood—’twas all for thee. [Refrain]

4 The love of Christ is warm and free,
We live because He died;
His drops of mercy fall on thee,
And all the world beside. [Refrain]
