1 By faith the Lamb of God I see,
Expiring on the cross for me;
He paid the mighty debt I owe;
He died because He lov’d me so.

He lov’d me so, He lov’d me so,
He died because He lov’d me so.

2 For me the Father sent His Son;
For me the victory He won;
To save my soul from endless woe,
He died because He loved me so. [Refrain]

3 So glad I am that He is mine,
So glad that I with Him shall shine;
I’ll trust in Him, for this I know,
He died because He lov’d me so. [Refrain]

4 O Lamb of God, that made me free,
I consecrate my all to Thee;
My all,—for this I surely know,
He died because He lov’d me so. [Refrain]

5 And when my Lord shall bid me come,
To join the loved ones round the throne,
I’ll sing, as through the gates I go,
He died because He lov’d me so. [Refrain]
