Representative Text

1 For love of me, He left a throne
And came in condescension low;
He sought me when I wandered lone
In my dark sin and grief and woe.

O matchless grace, that He should deign,
For love of me,
To tread the way of bitter pain,
To Calvary.

2 For love of me, He took my name,
That He to me might Savior be;
Endured the scorn, the grief, the shame,
And, sinless, bore sin’s penalty. [Refrain]

3 For love of me, He went, thorn crowned,
To cruel death upon the tree;
By foe reviled, by friend disowned,
And dying, won the victory. [Refrain]

4 Exalted high, He now doth reign
Lord over all, the Prince of Life;
Till He in power shall come again
To banish sin and end the strife. [Refrain]
