7s.
by H.K. Burlingham
1
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."
2
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
3
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
4
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
