1 O what a depth of love and boundless grace
The gospel light to sinful man displays,
When Christ Himself to us doth manifest,
And we in Him find comfort, peace and rest!
2 When in the soul this blessed truth resounds,
That in Christ’s death, for sinners life abounds,
O how doth this refresh the fainting heart
And bid all anxious doubts and fears depart.
3 For sinners without merit of their own
Which could the burden of great guilt atone,
Who no escape from penalty can see,
For such the Lamb of God died on the tree.
4 From Him there goes forth virtue, that we may
With confidence to God the Father pray.
And then we shall ourselves to all proclaim
The heirs of God through faith in Jesus’ Name.
