40. The Gospel of Thy Grace

6.6.6.6.8.8.8.
1
The gospel of Thy grace
 
My stubborn heart has won;
 
For God so loved the world,
 
He gave His only Son,
 
That whosoever will believe
 
Shall everlasting life receive—
 
Shall everlasting life receive!
2
The serpent "lifted up"
 
Could life and healing give;
 
So Jesus on the cross
 
Once died that we might live:
 
For whosoever will believe
 
Shall everlasting life receive—
 
Shall everlasting life receive!
3
"The soul that sinneth dies":
 
My awful doom I heard;
 
I was forever lost
 
But for Thy gracious word
 
That whosoever will believe
 
Shall everlasting life receive—
 
Shall everlasting life receive!
4
"Not to condemn the world"
 
The "Man of Sorrows" came;
 
But that the world might have
 
Salvation through His name:
 
For whosoever will believe
 
Shall everlasting life receive—
 
Shall everlasting life receive!
