Behold the love, the boundless love,
The love beyond degree;
Infinite love in Christ displayed,
From God thro’ Christ to me.
No earthly friend e’er loved so well,
So deep, so constantly;
Or loved when love was not returned,
As Christ my Lord loved me.
E’en when I walked the paths of sin,
And spurned His love so true,
He loved me still; so much He loved,
To die He dared to do;
Though lost in darkness and in doubt,
And bruised and stained with sin,
Though earthly friends refuse to know,
He’ll welcome us to Him.
