Representative Text

1. God loved the world so tenderly
His only Son He gave,
That all who on His name believe
Its wondrous power will save.

Refrain
For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son,
That whosoever believeth in Him
Should not perish, should not perish;
That whosoever believeth in Him
Should not perish, but have everlasting life.

2. Oh, love that only God can feel,
And only He can show!
Its height and depth,
Its length and breadth
Nor Heav’n nor earth can know! [Refrain]

3. Why perish, then, ye ransomed ones?
Why slight the gracious call?
Why turn from Him whose words proclaim
Eternal life to all? [Refrain]

4. O Savior, melt these hearts of ours,
And teach us to believe
That whosoever comes to Thee
Shall endless life receive. [Refrain]
