47*. God in Mercy Sent His Son

by H.K. Burlingham
God in mercy sent His Son
To a world by sin undone;
Jesus Christ was crucified—
'Twas for sinners Jesus died.
John 5:36; Romans 8:3; 1 John 5:19; Acts 2:23; 1 Timothy 1:15; Ephesians 1:6; 2 Corinthians 4:6; 1 John 1:5; 1 John 4:8
Oh the glory of the grace,
Shining in the Saviour's face,
Telling sinners from above,
"God is light," and "God is love."
Sin and death no more shall reign,
Jesus died and lives again!
In the glory's highest height—
See Him God's supreme delight.
Romans 6; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Revelation 1:18; Ephesians 1:20-21; Proverbs 8:30
All who in His name believe,
Everlasting life receive;
Lord of all is Jesus now,
Every knee to Him must bow.
John 3:16; Acts 10:36; Romans 14:11
Christ the Lord will come again,
He who suffered once will reign,
Every tongue at last shall own,
"Worthy is the Lamb" alone.
John 14:1-3; Revelation 11:15; Revelation 20:4; Matthew 16:21; Philippians 2:5-11; Revelation 5:12
