2011-04-12 - What Wondrous Love is This
The Songs of Lent, 4
|There's not much that I can add to the words of this wonderful hymn.
Here are a few Biblical passages that are reflected in the song. All are
from the New American Standard Bible.
Galations 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us--for it is written, "CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE"-- 14 in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
1 John 3:1 See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
Philippians 2:5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. 8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
|What Wondrous Love Is This
By: American Folk Hymn
What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!
When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down,
To God and to the Lamb I will sing, I will sing;
And when from death I'm free, I'll sing on, I'll sing on;
