“In his love … he redeemed them.” Isa. 63. 9

W. Gadsby         7s

1
Jesus lived, and loved, and died,
Rose, and lives to intercede;
And with Zion on his breast,
He has said he’ll ever rest.

2
Long before this world was made,
Or that monster, Sin, appeared,
God was love, and loved the men
He designèd to redeem.

3
[Love constrained the Lamb to die,
For a wretch so vile as I;
Love, immensely great and free,
Christ has shown to worthless me.]

4
Once I rolled in guilt and sin,
Heeded not a heart unclean;
But I now with wonder tell,
Jesus saved my soul from hell.
