Representative Text

1 God loved the world of sinners lost
And ruined by the fall,
Salvation full, at highest cost,
He offers free to all.

Oh, ’twas love, ’twas wondrous love!
The love of God to me:
It brought my Saviour from above,
To die on Calvary.

2 Eternal praises, Lord, to Thee,
Thou blessed Son of God;
For Thy deep love in cleansing me,
In Thy most precious blood. [Refrain]

3 E’en now by faith I know I'm Thine,
'Tis in Thy faithful Word;
Oh, height, oh, depth, of love divine!
In Thee, the risen Lord. [Refrain]

4 Oh, help me, Lord, to spread Thy fame!
And tell of all Thy grace,
To all the world Thy love proclaim;
Until I see Thy face. [Refrain]
