O LOVE SO BOUNDLESS, AND SO TALL!

O this precious and priceless soul,
Sin its spoilage, and sin its woe.
O its sorely eternal place;
This being God’s unchanging sentence!

What then can cleanse sin from man’s soul?
Or, what can make priceless soul whole?
It’s Sinless Blood for sinful men!
Ah! Answer truly not with men.

Is there then any true way out;
And a certain escape route?
Can earth-folk a redeemer find?
Not ‘midst its wretch’d mortal kind!

So then, God drew salvation plan,
His Love occasioned it for man
And His Grace brought it to us all
Oh, the Cross where He paid it all!

For God loving the soul so rich,
And abhorring seeing one perish;
Sin, being it’s sad eternal loss:
Gave His Only Begotten Son!

The reason comes so clear and bold:
For without the shedding of blood,
There can’t be remission of sins.
This is the requirement for sin!

And Triune - God reached some accord:
Gave us Him - the Lamb of God;
Immanuel, this is God with us;
Jesus, God in the flesh He is!

This is mission divine: the Cross!
Yes, onward to Calvary’s Cross,
He that’s our Creator for us went,
For your sins and mine to remit.

O the Agony for our mess;
O the Pains Jesus bore for us;
O the Scorn from humanity;
But the Lord endured all of it!

Yet, forsaken by His Father;
Though He sent Him for this matter.
Disowned by Him for this reason:
God can’t behold one single sin!

But the Son took ALL, ALL OUR SINS.
My dear, think seriously on this;
Lay it real well and firm in you.
Grace is free; grace covers all sins!

Sin conquered, death must be also.
Buried, on the third day He rose.
And Satan’s pow’r He has rubbish’d!
Halleluyah: ‘It is finished’.

Hear the kind call of the Savior:
“Come to Me, all you that labor,
And you that are heavy-laden,
Rest in your souls will I give thee.

My yoke receive, and of Me learn;
For I’m meek and lowly in heart.
Then, rest for your souls you shall find:
For My yoke is easy, weight light”

Ere time and grace for’ver be gone,
Hear as eternity beckons:
The great separation is nigh,
The saved shall be with God on high.

Caught up in the twinkling of eye!
The sting of death gone forever!
Power of the grave fully crushed!
Sin, death, grave totally vanquished!


Eternal damnation now passed;
And henceforth eternally bless’d;
Man with the Triune-God to dwell:
And free at last, from sin and hell!

O Christ’s wondrous Calvary Cross!
O so great and marvelous Grace!
O Love so boundless, and so tall!
Thank You Lord God that paid it all!

And to the Lord slain for our sins,
The saints shall come with songs and hymns
Singing with rich angelic tone
Before Your Rainbow-Circled Throne.

Unending worship to render,
As holy, reverent adorers:
So fulfilling creation purpose!
’Cause of the Savior slain for us!
