426. Behold What Love

1 Behold what love, yes, love divine,
The Father showed to thee,
In that He gave His only Son,
Thy soul from sin to free.

Refrain:
Such love cannot be fathomed,
’Tis like the boundless sea;
His broken heart so wounded,
Is bleeding now for thee.

2 He gave His life to make thee whole,
He shed His blood for all,
To heal the body, save the soul—
Then come, for mercy call. [Refrain]

3 Oh, depths of love to mortals lost,
He suffered on the tree;
Our only hope of heaven cost
His blood—’twas all for thee. [Refrain]

4 The love of Christ is warm and free,
We live because He died;
His drops of mercy fall on thee,
And all the world beside. [Refrain]
