The Love of God to his People. Jer. 31. 3; Ps. 3. 8

W. Gadsby   C.M.

1
Salvation! O my soul, rejoice;
Salvation is of God;
He speaks, and that almighty voice
Proclaims his grace abroad.

2
How wonderful, how grand the plan!
All Deity’s engaged
To rescue rebel, ruined man
From Satan’s power and rage.

3
The Father loved us ere we fell,
And will for ever love;
Nor shall the powers of earth or hell
His love from Zion move.

4
’Twas love that moved him to ordain
A Surety just and good;
And on his heart inscribe the name
Of all for whom he stood.

5
Nor is the Surety short of love;
He loves beyond degree;
No less than love divine could move
The Lord to die for me.

6
And O what love the Spirit shows!
When Jesus he reveals
To men oppressed with sin and woes,
He all their sorrows heals.

7
The Three-in-One and One-in-Three,
In love for ever rest;
And Zion shall in glory be,
And with his love be blessed.
