Representative Text

1 Jesus came down to this world of woe,
No place His own did He ever know;
Wonderful grace that He loves us so,
Unto us who believe He is precious.

Refrain:
Unto us who believe He is precious,
Unto us who believe He is precious;
His love so unbounded has won our hearts,
Unto us who believe He is precious.

2 No one so tender and kind as He,
No one so loving could ever be;
Gladly to Him will we bend the knee,
Unto us who believe He is precious. [Refrain]

3 Many may think He was but a man,
Those who have known Him they never can;
Lo! He was dead but He lives again,
Unto us who believe He is precious. [Refrain]
