153. Behold What Love, That God Should Give

1 Behold what love, that God should give
To us His only Son,
That all who trust in Him should live
While endless ages run.

2 Behold what love, that God should call
The sons of men His own,
Joint heirs with Christ, the Lord of all,
To an eternal throne.

3 Behold what things He hath prepared
For those who love Him here;
No eye hath seen, no ear hath shared
The glories of that sphere.

4 Thy love, O God, transcends all tho't;
How faint and weak is mine!
Help me to love Thee as I ought,
O give me love like Thine!

Amen.
