239. To Us Our God His Love Commends

C.M.
by James Stennett
1
To us our God His love commends,
 
When by our sins undone;
 
That He might spare His enemies,
 
He would not spare His Son;
Romans 5:8; Romans 5:10; Romans 8:32
2
His only Son, on whom was placed
 
His whole delight and love,
 
Before He formed the earth below,
 
Or spread the heavens above.
Proverbs 8:22-30
3
Our sorrows and our guilt to bear,
 
Our judgment to sustain;
 
He came, upon the tree to die,
 
That we might life obtain.
Isaiah 53:4-6; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 Thessalonians 5:10
4
His Word assures He'll quickly come,
 
For this His brethren pray;
 
The whole creation for it groans,
 
Come, Lord, without delay!
Revelation 22:17,20; Romans 8:22;
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
“For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:10)
“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32)
“The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth. While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth. When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep. When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth. Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him.” (Proverbs 8:22-30)
“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:4-6)
“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)
“Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.” (1 Thessalonians 5:10)
“And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” (Revelation 22:17)
“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” (Revelation 22:20)
“For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.” (Romans 8:22)
