THE LOVE OF GOD
© 1982 William C. Highsmith


THE LAMB OF GOD WAS SLAIN ON CALVARY.
HIS BLOOD WAS SHED - FOR YOU AND ME.
HE GAVE HIS LIFE, THERE ON THAT AWFUL TREE,
TO CLEANSE FROM SIN AND SET US FREE.

THE FATHER RAISED HIS SON AND NOW HE LIVES -
AND REIGNS IN HEARTS - NEW PEACE HE GIVES.
HIS KINGDOM'S HERE AND FAR BEYOND THE SKIES -
A REALM OF LIFE - WHERE NO ONE DIES.

IT IS BECAUSE, TO HIM THE WORLD IS DEAR,
WE FACE EACH DAY AND STILL NOT FEAR,
HIS POW'R PROTECTS, WE ALWAYS KNOW HE'S NEAR.
WE ARE ASSURED, THE WAY IS CLEAR.

CHORUS:

THE LOVE OF GOD - THE LOVE OF GOD -
INSEPARABLE THRU CHRIST THE LORD -
THE LOVE OF GOD.
