Representative Text

1 The love of God flows deep and wide
Thro’ Christ who bled for us and died;
Its widening stretch we cannot see,
It reaches far beyond the sea.

Oh love, oh, love, oh, love of God so free;
He proved His love for you and me
Upon dark Calvary.

2 Tho’ men have gone in sin so deep
That hell would blush and angels weep,
Yet, God so loved each guilty one
He gave for them His only Son. [Refrain]

3 The heart that is so hard in sin
That this great love can never win,
Is truly fit for nothing less
Than endless hell and wretchedness. [Refrain]

4 But tho’ your sins be black and deep,
And awful darkness ’round you creep,
Yet, God so loves your guilty soul,
He’ll save you from all hell’s control. [Refrain]
