Representative Text

1 From the throne of God is streaming,
Love so free, love so free;
And ‘tis offered to the sinner,
Even unto me.

Chorus:
Love divine, so full and free,
Shown by Christ on Calvary;
Thro’ His grace and tender mercy,
He hath rescued me.

2 When a captive, Jesus sought me,
Set me free, set me free,
By His blood He saved and brought me
His own child to be. [Chorus]

3 Now redeemed, I’ll tell the story,
“Grace is free, grace is free,”
Unto Christ be all the glory,
For He rescued me. [Chorus]
