Representative Text

1 O love unmeasured, vast and deep,
Thy first glad chorus rang
When o’er the new creation’s birth
The stars of morn in beauty sang.

Refrain:
The love of God made manifest to us,
In the gift of Christ, his Son, whom he spared not,
But for sin, he delivered him up,
But for sin, he delivered him up;
He has redeemed us, he has redeemed us,
He has redeemed us through his atonement once for all,
He has redeemed us, he has redeemed us,
He has redeemed us through his atonement once for all.

2 ’Twas love that from our lost estate
Came down to set us free,
And gave its life that we henceforth
Redeem’d unto grace through faith might be. [Refrain]

3 ’Twas love inspired the angel host
At midnight hour to sing,
Good will to man and peace on earth,
Thro’ him who is born to reign our King. [Refrain]

4 ’Twas love that bore the cross for us,
That we a crown might wear;
’Twas love unbarred the gates above,
And all who believe may enter there. [Refrain]
