336. Behold, What Wondrous Love and Grace

6-8s.
by Saunders
1
Behold, what wondrous love and grace!
 
When we were wretched and undone,
 
To save a ruined, helpless race,
 
The Father gave His only Son!
 
Of twice ten thousand gifts divine,
 
No gift like this could ever shine.
2
Oh gift of love unspeakable!
 
Oh gift of mercy all divine!
 
We once were slaves of death and hell,
 
But in Christ's image we shall shine:
 
For every gift a song we raise,
 
But this demands eternal praise.
3
Praise shall employ these tongues of ours,
 
Till we with all the saints above,
 
Extol His name with nobler powers,
 
And see the ocean of His love:
 
Then, while we look, and wondering gaze,
 
We'll fill the heavens with endless praise.
