Representative Text

1 There was One who came from Heaven,
Came this fallen world to save,
Sparing naught for our redemption,
E'en His very life He gave.

Do you love Him?
Do you love Him?
May this your answer be:
Yes, I love Him,
Yes, I love Him,
Because He first love me.

2 His was love divine and tender,
More than we could think or dream;
His was infinite compassion,
His the sacrifice supreme. [Refrain]

3 On the cruel cross uplifted,
He did all that love could do,
To constrain our hearts to love Him,
How can we but love Him too? [Refrain]

4 Love like that can never fail us,
He will always be our Friend;
Having loved us so, as sinners,
He will love us to the end. [Refrain]

Thomas O. Chisholm was born in Franklin, Kentucky in 1866. His boyhood was spent ona farm and in teaching district schools. He spent five years as editor of the local paper at Franklin. He was converted to Christianity at the age of 26 and soon after was business manager and office editor of the "Pentecostal Hearld" or Louisville, Ky. In 1903 he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church South. His aim in writing was to incorporate as much as Scripture as possible and to avoid flippant or sentimental themes.
