15:13 Greater love hath no
man than this, that a man lay
down his life for
forgive them!" thus did He pray,|
Even as His lifeblood flowed fast away;
for sinners while in such woe -
No one but Jesus ever loved so.
10:11 I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
am Jesus' little lamb,|
Ever glad at heart I am;
For my Shepherd gently guides
Knows my need, and well provides me,
Loves me every day the same,
calls me by my name.
- Henrietta Hayn, 1778
4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his
Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down;
e'er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?
Amazing love! How can it be
That Thou, my God, shouldst die
- Charles Wesley
3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God
sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through
him might be saved.
the love that drew salvation's plan!
Oh, the grace that brought it down to
Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span
there was great, and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
my burdened soul found liberty -
unto me, ye weary, and I will give you rest."
O blessed voice of Jesus
which comes to hearts oppressed!
It tells of benediction, of pardon, grace
Of joy that hath no ending, of love which cannot cease.
whosoever cometh I will not cast him out."
O patient love of Jesus which
drives away our doubts;
Which calls us, very sinners, unworthy though we be
love so free and boundless, to come, dear Lord, to Thee!
4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.

I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music
in mine ear,
The sweetest name on earth.
tells me of a Savior's love,
Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His
The sinner's perfect plea.
how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!
2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace
ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly
places in Christ Jesus: 7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding
riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
look at the cross upon Calvary,
And O what a wonder divine!
To think of
the wealth it holds for me-
The riches of heaven are mine.
find at the cross blessed victory,
And grace for each step of the way;
fount of God's love is flowing free,
And sweeter it grows day by day.
the heart of Jesus|
There is love for you,
Love most pure and tender,
most deep and true.
Why should you be lonely,
Why for friendship sigh,
the heart of Jesus
Has a full supply?
5:6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man
some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that,
while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
What a Friend for sinners!
Jesus! Lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me,
foes assail me,
He, my Savior makes me whole.
what a Savior!
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
is with me to the end.
J. Wilbur Chapman
31:3 The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee
with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
with everlasting love,|
Led by grace that love to know -
Thou hast taught me it is so!
O this full and perfect peace,
this transport all divine -
In a love which cannot cease,
I am His and
He is mine.
Love that wilt not let me go,
I rest me weary soul in thee;
I give thee
back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller
- George Matheson
8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation,
or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As
it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as
sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors
through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life,
nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to
come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate
us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I am resting, resting
In the joy of what Thou art;
I am finding out the
Of Thy loving heart.
Thou hast bid me gaze upon Thee,
beauty fills my soul,
For by Thy transforming power
Thou hast made me whole.
trusting Thee, Lord Jesus,
I behold Thee as Thou art,
And Thy, love, so
pure, so changeless,
Satisfies my heart -
Satisfies its deepest longings,
supplies its every need,
Compasseth me round with blessings:
Thine is love
