A sense of amazement pervades this song. Why would someone so rich become poor? It is for “love’s sake,” says stanza 1 and stanza 3 proclaims: “Lord you are love beyond all telling.” Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 5 says it is “with fierce love” that God holds this world and sent Jesus into the world.
