Representative Text

1 Give me a sight, O Savior,
Of Thy wondrous love to me,
Of the love that bro’t Thee down to earth,
To die on Calvary.

Refrain:
Oh, make me understand it,
Help me to take it in,
What it meant to Thee, the Holy One,
To bear away my sin.

2 Was it the nails, O Savior,
That bound Thee to the tree?
Nay, 'twas Thine everlasting love,
Thy love for me, for me. [Refrain]

3 Oh, wonder of all wonders,
That thro’ Thy death for me,
My open sins, my secret sins,
Can all forgiven be. [Refrain]

4 Then melt my heart, O Savior,
Bend me, yea, break me down,
Until I own Thee Conqueror,
And Lord and Sov'reign crown. [Refrain]
