1 From glory’s height he came down to save,
So great was his love for me;
Upon the cross his dear life he gave,
So great was his love for me.

Refrain:
My heart believed, and my faith received,
The gift of his love so free;
He bore the cross, its pain and loss,
So great was his love for me,
So great was his love for me.

2 In him is strength for my deepest need,
So great is his love for me;
Upon him daily my soul doth feed,
So great is his love for me. [Refrain]

3 He’s now preparing for me a place,
So great is his love for me;
The mansion fair is the gift of grace,
So great is his love for me. [Refrain]
