How Great The Love

How great the wisdom, and the love
That filled the courts on high
And sent the Savior from above
To suffer, bleed, and die!

His precious blood He freely spilt
His life He freely gave
A sinless sacrifice for guilt
A dying world to save

By strict Obedience Jesus won
The prize with glory rife:
"Thy will, O God, not mine be done"
Adorned His mortal life

He marked the path and led the way
And every point defines
To light and life and endless day
Where God's full presence shines

How great, how glorious, how complete!
Redemptions grand design
Where justice, love, and mercy meet
In harmony divine!
