Representative Text

1 Hast thou heard of God, who in wondrous love,
Gave his only Son to die;
Died that we might live, yes, forevermore,
In a home prepar'd on high.

It was wonderful love, Oh, such wonderful love,
God's love in Christ made nigh;
It was wonderful love, Oh, yes, matchless love,
That brought Christ here to die.

2 It was love that gave, it was love that came,
When the Lord appear'd to men;
On the cruel cross Jesus died in love,
There to save us from our sin. [Chorus]

3 I was won to Christ by this wondrous love,
Oh, the love of God to me;
For it filled my soul, and it made me whole,
It has cleans'd and made me free. [Chorus]

4 By the love that sought, by the love that bought,
By the grace God sends so free;
All who Christ receive, and on him believe,
They shall live eternally. [Chorus]
