O the Love of God Is Boundless

Representative Text

1 Oh, the love of God is boundless,
Perfect, causeless, full and free!
Doubts have vanished, fears are groundless,
Now I know that love to me.
Love, the source of all my blessing;
Love, that set itself on me;
Love, that gave the spotless Victim;
Love, told out at Calvary.
‘Twas love displayed by Jesus,
‘Twas love displayed by Jesus,
‘Twas love displayed by Jesus,
When alone at Calvary.

2 Oh, the cross of Christ is wondrous!
There I learn God’s heart to me;
‘Midst the silent, deep’ning darkness,
“God is Light” I also see.
Holy claims of justice finding
Full expression in that scene;
Light and love alike are telling
What yon woe and suff’ring mean.
My guilt was borne by Jesus,
My guilt was borne by Jesus,
My guilt was borne by Jesus
When in darkness on the tree.

3 Oh, the sight in heav’n is glorious!
Man in righteousness is there;
Once the Victim, now victorious,
Jesus lives in glory fair.
Him who met the claims of glory,
And the need of ruined man,
On the cross—oh, wondrous story!
God has set at His right hand.
How rightly crowned is Jesus,
How rightly crowned is Jesus,
How rightly crowned is Jesus,
He who once atonement made.

4 Oh, what rest of soul in viewing
Jesus on His Father’s throne!
Yea, what peace forever flowing
From God’s rest in His own Son!
Gazing upward into heaven,
Reading glory in His face,
Knowing that ‘tis He, once given
On the cross to take my place.
‘Tis rest in looking upward,
‘Tis rest in looking upward,
‘Tis rest in looking upward,
Gazing on His face so fair.
