Representative Text

1 Down from His splendor in glory He came
Into a world of woe,
Took on Himself all my guilt and my shame–
Why should He love me so?

How can I help but love Him
When He loved me so?
How can I help but love Him
When He loved me so?

2 I am unworthy to take of His grace,
Wonderful grace so free;
Yet Jesus suffered and died in my place,
E'en for a soul like me. [Refrain]

3 He is the fairest of thousands to me,
His love is sweet and true;
Wonderful beauty in Him I now see,
More than I ever knew. [Refrain]
