1 It was Jesus from beginning
Who devis’d salvation’s plan;
By His love, His blest compassion,
He aton’d for sinful man.

I know Him, O I know Him!
He was God in form of man;
I know Him, yes, I know Him
For He wro’t redemption’s plan.

2 Full of tenderness and pity
In the garden He did bow;
Had men known the Lord of glory
Thorns could ne’er have prect His brow. [Chorus]

3 In His flesh our God did suffer,
Hear them murmur “crucify!”
By His own was He forsaken
When He bro’t redemption nigh. [Chorus]

4 Jesus’ name to us is given,
He’s the true, the living way;
He’s the only door to heaven,
He is all our hope today. [Chorus]
