Representative Text

1 Dear Lord, how wondrous is thy love
To such unworthy worms as we!
Thou hast sent down the heavenly Dove,
To set our souls at liberty.

2 We that were doomed to woe and pain,
Exposed to death of every kind,
Through Jesus Christ, the Lamb once slain,
Do life, and peace, and pardon find.

3 Shall we forget our Savior's grace,
Who died to save our guilty souls,
And bring us to his Father's face,
Where endless peace and pleasure rolls?

4 Forbid, O Lord, each wandering thought,
May Christ be all in our esteem;
Let earthly things be all forgot,
And counted loss, compared with him.

5 Lord Jesus, make us bear in mind,
Thy rich thy pure redeeming love,
Till we shall be for ever joined
With those that sing thy praise above.

6 Then shall we stand before thy face,
And shout with all the ransomed throng;
Our cry shall be "Free grace, Free grace,"
While endless ages roll along.
