Freely, freely

Representative Text

1 That is how the Father gave—
Freely, freely, freely;
That’s how Jesus came to save—
Freely, freely, freely.
’Twas His mercy took us in;
Dark in deed our lot had been.
Had He not atoned for sin
Freely, freely, freely.

2 So to Him ourselves we give—
Freely, freely, freely;
For His sake henceforth to live—
Freely, freely, freely.
Lord, our selfishness destroy!
Time, and strength and wealth and joy,
For Thy cause will we employ
Freely, freely, freely.

3 Let the living waters flow—
Freely, freely, freely;
Let the Gospel message go—
Freely, freely, freely.
That’s a glorious work to do!
To the Great Commission true;
Give as He has given you—
Freely, freely, freely.
