1
O THE love of God is boundless,
Perfect, causeless, full and free!
Doubts have vanished, fears are groundless,
Now I know that love to me.
Love, the source of all my blessing,
Love that set itself on me;
Love that gave the spotless Victim,
Love told out at Calvary.
'Tis love displayed in Jesus,
When alone at Calvary.
2
O the cross of Christ is wondrous!
There I learn God's heart to me;
Midst the silent, deep'ning darkness,
"God is light" I also see.
Holy claims of justice finding
Full expression in that scene,
Light and love alike are telling
What yon woe and suff'rings mean.
My guilt was borne by Jesus
When in darkness on the tree.
3
O the sight in heav'n is glorious!
Man in righteousness is there;
Once the Victim, now victorious,
Jesus lives in glory fair!
Him, who met the claims of glory
And the need of ruined man
On the cross - O woundrous story! -
God has set at His right hand.
How rightly crowned is Jesus,
He who once atonement made!

R.D. Edwards
