Representative Text

1 Oh the depth and the riches of God's saving grace
Flowing down from the cross for me!
There the debt for my sins by the Savior was paid
In His suff'ring on Calvary!

Refrain:
Oh the depth of such wonderful love,
Flowing boundless and full and free!
And the debt for my sins was all paid
In His suff'ring on Calvary!

2 How my heart humbly bows in His presence today,
When I think of His agony,
By His stripes I am freed from the bondage of sin
Thru His suff'ring on Calvary! [Refrain]

3 Oh what marvelous mercy, what infinite love!
What immeasurable grace I see!
By His blood I am cleansed; I am happy and free
Thru His suff'ring on Calvary! [Refrain]
