1 I am so glad that Jesus came,
Into my night of grief and shame;
That He did not His love deny,
But loved me well enough to die.

He loved me well! O yes, so well!
Far more than mortal tongue can tell;
No love so great in earth or sky,
He loved me well enough to die.

2 I am so glad that Jesus came,
Who healed my wounds and bore my blame;
So glad He did not pass me by,
But loved me well enough to die. [Refrain]

3 I am so glad that Jesus came,
With life and pardon in His name;
For He alone could justify,
Who loved me well enough to die. [Refrain]

4 I am so glad that Jesus came,
That He forever is the same;
That now He lives for me on high,
Who loved me well enough to die. [Refrain]
