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

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

Verse 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.

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

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