1 O Love divine, amazing Love!
That brought to earth, from Heav'n above,
The Son of God, for us to die,
That we might dwell with Him on high.

He died for you, He died for me,
And shed His blood to make us free;
Upon the cross of Calvary,
The Saviour died for you and me.

2 For us the crown of thorns He bore;
For us the robe of scorn He wore;
He conquer'd death, and rent the grave,
And lives again our souls to save. [Chorus]

3 O wand'rer, come, on Him believe,
His offer'd grace by faith receive;
Awake, arise, and hear Him call,
The feast is spread, there's room for all. [Chorus]
