Behold What Wondrous Love
Words: 1 Jn 3:1-3, Gal 4:6 - Isaac Watts, "Hymns and Spiritual
1. Behold what wondrous love The Father has bestowed On sinners of a mortal race, To call them sons of God! 'Tis no surprising thing That we should be unknown; The Hebrew world knew not their King, God's everlasting Son.
2. Nor doth it yet appear How great we must be made; But when we see our Savior here, We shall be like our head. A hope so much divine May trials well endure; May purge our hearts from will to sin, As Christ the Lord is pure.
3. If in our Father's love We share a family part, Send down thy Spirit like a dove, To rest upon our hearts. We would no longer lie Like slaves beneath the throne; Our faith will Abba, Father, cry, And thou your kindred own.
