Representative Text

1 God loved the world of sinners lost
And ruined by the fall;
Salvation full, at highest cost,
He offers free to all.

Refrain:
O ‘twas love, ‘twas wondrous love,
The love of God to me;
It brought my Saviour from above,
To die on Calvary!

2 E’en now by faith I claim him mine,
The risen Son of God;
Redemption by his death I find,
And cleansing through the blood.

3 Love brings the glorious fulness in,
And to his saints makes known
The blessèd rest from inbred sin,
Through faith in Christ alone.

4 Believing souls, rejoicing go;
There shall to you be given
A glorious foretaste, here below,
Of endless life in Heaven.
