1 When Jesus looked upon the earth
And saw the plight of man,
The fountains of His love gushed forth
And formed redemption’s plan.
O love unknown
That brought Thee down
To leave Thy throne
And royal crown,
Our souls to free
O heart of boundless love!
2 Before He came, He knew what He
Would have to undergo:
The bitter shame and agony
That waited Him below.[Refrain]
3 He knew it all, yet gladly came
Our cup of grief to share;
All glory to His holy name
Who saved us from despair![Refrain]
4 Now, glory-crowned forevermore,
In that bright world above,
He builds eternal mansions for
The objects of His love.[Refrain]
5 O guilty soul! thy debt is paid:
Then why unsaved remain?
In vain was boundless love displayed?
Did Jesus die in vain? [Refrain]
