51*. Oh What a Gift the Father Gave

C.M.

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
