Charles H. Ga­bri­el, 1910 (🔊 pdf nwc).

There’s a message that comes
To the soul in its need,
’Tis a wonderful message,
And all the world may read.
’Twas spoken for him
Whosoe’er will give it heed—
I am come that they might have life,
And more abundantly.

Refrain

More abundantly, more abundantly,
That they might have life more abundantly;
They might have life, and more abundantly.

’Tis a message that tells
Of an infinite love,
That could bring One to earth
From His throne of light above,
To save us from sin,
And His wondrous grace to prove—
I am come that they might have life,
And more abundantly.

Refrain

’Tis a message of gladness
The world cannot give,
And its fullness of meaning
We freely may receive:
’Twas given for him
Who on Jesus will believe—
I am come that they might have life,
And more abundantly.

Refrain
