Representative Text

1 God gave his Son for me,
O wondrous love! From sin to set me free,
O wondrous love!
A guilty rebel I,
Bound and condemned to die,
He did not pass me by;
O wondrous love!

2 There, there at God’s right hand,
O wondrous love! I see my Saviour stand,
O wondrous love!
He makes my nature pure,
In him I am secure,
Whatever I endure;
O wondrous love!

3 He’ll give me needful grace,
O wondrous love! Soon I shall see his face,
O wondrous love!
Join those who’ve gone before,
Sorrow and pain all o’er, Heaven,
Heaven, for evermore!
O wondrous love!
