Love Surpassing Human Love


Written By Irene DurfeeO love surpassing human love,
The love divine for sinners lost;
In love God gave His only Son,
His shameful death salvation’s cost.O blessed Savior, by Thy pain,
The sinner reaps eternal gain.God loved us when we would not have
His blessed Son to be our Lord;
And freely, fully He forgave,
When we believed His holy Word.The Son of God in wondrous love,
On Calv’ry’s cross was slain for me;
He paid my debt, He bore my load,
“In His own body on the tree.”
