51*. Oh What a Gift the Father Gave

C.M.
1
Oh what a gift the Father gave
 
When He bestowed His Son!
 
To save poor, ruined, guilty man,
 
By sin defiled, undone.
Romans 8:3
2
For I was lost and vile indeed!
 
To sin a willing prey,
 
Till God in mercy interposed,
 
And turned my night to day.
Luke 19:10; 1 Thessalonians 5:5
3
Now I can call the Saviour mine,
 
Though all unworthy still;
 
I'm sheltered by His precious blood
 
Beyond the reach of ill.
Song of Solomon 2:16; Song of Solomon 6:3; Luke 15:21; 1 Peter 1:19; Exodus 12:13
4
Come, all who trust in Jesus, now,
 
And tell our joys abroad;
 
Let thankful hymns of praise ascend
 
For Christ the gift of God.
John 3:16
“For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh.” (Romans 8:3)
