1 Behold, what love, what boundless love
The Father hath bestowed on us,
That we should be the sons of God,
And share His righteousness.

Refrain:
Behold, what love, behold, what love
The Father hath bestowed,
That we should be the sons of God,
Through Jesus’ precious blood.

2 Oh, wondrous grace! how can it be
That we, who were conceived in sin,
Should rank with heaven’s family—
Of God be born again! [Refrain]

3 When sons, we are the heirs of God,
And rich joint-heirs with Christ the Son;
When sanctified through Jesus’ blood,
Our heritage we own. [Refrain]

4 All sons of God must holy be;
All do our Father’s image bear;
None but the pure in heart shall see
His face, and heaven share. [Refrain]
