Atonement, Praise, Salvation, Saviour, The Cross of Christ, The Sacrifice of Christ



Verse 1
My song is love unknown
My Saviour’s love to me
Love to the loveless shown
That they might lovely be
O who am I, that for my sake
My Lord should take frail flesh and die

Verse 2
He came from his blest throne
Salvation to bestow
But men made strange and none
The longed-for Christ would know
But, O my friend, my friend indeed
Who at my need his life did spend

Verse 3
Sometimes they strew his way
And his sweet praises sing
Resounding all the day
Hosannas to their king
Then “Crucify!” is all their breath
And for his death they thirst and cry

Verse 4
Here might I stay and sing
No story so divine
Never was love, dear King
Never was grief like thine
This is my friend, in whose sweet praise
I all my days could gladly spend

  Sample Introduction

Our Saviour has loved us with the most costly love. Not because we are deserving or lovable but to make us lovely. For us he descended his throne and bore indescribable grief to bestow us with salvation.
