GOD loved the world of sinners lost

And ruined by the fall;

Salvation full, at highest cost,

He offers free to all.

O ’twas love, ’twas wondrous love!

The love of God to me;

It brought my Saviour from above,

To die on Calvary.


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.


Love brings the glorious fulness in,

And to His saints makes known

The blessed rest from inbred sin,

Through faith in Christ alone.


Believing souls, rejoicing go;

There shall to you be given

A glorious foretaste, here below,

Of endless life in heaven.


Of victory now o’er Satan’s power

Let all the ransomed sing,

And triumph in the dying hour

Through Christ, the Lord, our King.
