Representative Text

1 O’er Judah’s plain, long years ago,
The song rang out that all might know,
The Christ was born, the promised One,
The Father’s well-beloved Son.

He loved me so, He loved me so,
He came to save my soul from woe,
It fills my heart with joy, to know,
It was because He loved me so.

2 His life of toil, neglect and pain,
To save my soul, shall it be vain?
Gethsem’ny’s pray’rs before me rise!
For this my Lord left Paradise. [Refrain]

3 Up Calvary His cross He bore,
The crown of thorns for me He wore;
The taunts, the sneers, Oh! can it be,
All this for me, all this for me? [Refrain]

4 His life He gave, and this small thing,
My heart, He asks of me to bring;
Heav’ns gifts to me had not appealed,
But to His love I yield, I yield. [Refrain]
