47*. God in Mercy Sent His Son

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.

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:5-11)
“Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.” (Revelation 5:12)
