435: GOD in mercy sent His Son

by Miss Hannah Kilham Burlingham (1842-1901)
1 GOD in mercy sent His Son
To a world by sin undone;
Jesus Christ was crucified ---
'Twas for sinners Jesus died.

2 Oh! the glory of the grace,
Shining in the Saviour's face,
Telling sinners from above,
"God is Light" and "God is Love."

3 Sin and death no more shall reign,
Jesus died and lives again.
In the glory's highest height
See Him God's supreme delight.

4 All who in His name believe,
Everlasting life receive;
Lord of all is Jesus now;
Every knee to Him must bow.

5 Christ the Lord will come again;
He who suffered once will reign;
Every tongue at last shall own,
"Worthy is the Lamb" alone.
