Full Text

1. Was it enough, that God should die
To take away my sin?
Enough to close the door of Hell,
And stop my falling in?

That I, a treas’nous wretch, should be
Adopted as His son!

5. To wear His name, to feel His kiss,
To lie in that embrace,
What grand, mysterious gentleness
Shines in my Father’s face!
