Representative Text

1 O the wondrous love the Father shows
Unto us unworthy His to be,
For we have been made the sons of God
Thro’ Christ of Calvary.

Refrain:
Behold, what manner of love,
Behold, what manner of love,
the Father has bestowed upon us,
that we should be called the child of God,
the children of God.

2 When He shall appear what we shall be
Fills the soul with joy and bliss divine,
We shall be like Him whose own we are,
And in His beauty shine. [Refrain]

3 Hopefully we wait for that glad day,
When He shall appear His own to greet,
Ready may we be, true sons indeed,
With joy our Lord to meet. [Refrain]
