God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.@John 3:16

’Tis a true and faithful saying,
Jesus died for sinful men;
Tho’ we’ve told the story often,
We must tell it o’er again.

Refrain

O glad and glorious Gospel!
With joy we now proclaim,
A full and free salvation,
Through faith in Jesus’ name.

He has made a full atonement,
Now His saving work is done;
He has satisfied the Father,
Who accepts us in His Son.

Refrain

Still upon His hands the nail prints,
And the scars upon His brow;
Our Redeemer, Lord and Savior
In the glory standeth now.

Refrain

But remember, this same Jesus
In the clouds will come again,
And with Him His blood-bought people
Evermore shall live and reign.
