Behold, what Love!

Verse 1:
Behold, what love, what boundless love,
The Father hath bestowed
On sinners lost, that we should be
Now called the sons of God!

Refrain:
Behold, what manner of love!
What manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us,
That we, that we should be call’d,
Should be called the sons of God.

Verse 2:
No longer far from Him, but now
By “precious blood” made nigh:
Accepted in the “Well-beloved,”
Near to God’s heart we lie,

Verse 3:
What we in glory soon shall be,
It doth not yet appear;
But when our precious Lord we see,
We shall His image bear.

Verse 4:
With such a blessed hope in view,
We would more holy be,
More like our risen, glorious Lord,
Whose face we soon shall see.

M.S.S./James McGranahan
