1Father, Whose everlasting Love
Thy only Son for sinners gave,
Whose grace to all did freely move,
And sent Him down the world to save:
2Help us Thy mercy to extol,
Immense, unfathomed, unconfined;
To praise the Lamb Who died for all,
The general Savior of mankind.
3Thy undistinguishing regard
Was cast on Adam’s fallen race;
For all Thou hast in Christ prepared
Sufficient, sovereign, saving grace.
4The world He suffered to redeem;
For all He hath the atonement made;
For those that will not come to Him,
The ransom of His life was paid.
5Arise, O God! Maintain Thy cause;
The fullness of the Gentiles call;
Lift up the standard of Thy cross,
And all shall own Thou diedst for all. Amen.
Psalm22:27All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
Romans5:15But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
