IT WAS LOVE

E.C. Heidelberg

Why did Jesus give up heaven’s glory for this world of sin and misery?

Why did Jesus suffer in the Garden, drain the bitter up of agony?

Why did Jesus stand in Pilate’s judgment hall

Wear that cruel crown of thorns so patiently?

Why did Jesus give His life to safe me?

It was love, God’s wondrous love for me

 

Why did Jesus lift me when I stumble, take my hand whene’er I go astray?

Give the strength I need for each tomorrow, grace to face the trials of the day

Why did Jesus share the load I cannot bear

Fill my soul with peace and joy beyond degree?

And why does He watch oér me and keep me?

It was love, God’s wondrous love for me
