The Love that gave Jesus to Die

Verse 1:
Let us sing of the love of the Lord,
As now to the cross we draw nigh;
Let us sing to the praise of the God of all grace,
For the love that gave Jesus to die.

Refrain:
O the love that gave Jesus to die,
The love that gave Jesus to die;
Praise God, it is mine, this love so divine,
The love that gave Jesus to die.

Verse 2:
O how great was the love that was shown
To us–we can never tell why–
Not to angels, but men; let us praise Him again
For the love that gave Jesus to die.

Verse 3:
Now this love unto all God commends,
Not one would His mercy pass by;
“Whosoever shall call,” there is pardon for all
In the love that gave Jesus to die.

Verse 4:
Who is he that can separate those
Whom God doth in love justify;
Whatsoever we need He includes in the deed,
In the love that gave Jesus to die.

Tune of: El Nathan/James McGranahan
