Gift of Love
by Jo Ann Kelly

"For God so loved the world that He gave
His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth
on Him should not perish, but have eternal life."
John 3:16

The heart of the Father looked down on fallen man.
He saw the result of sin in His beautiful creation.
So tenderly, with love, He knew salvation's plan;
He would send His Son, to save every tribe and Nation.

Within the fullness of time, Jesus came as God's only begotten Son;
Conceived by the Holy Spirit, from above.
He, alone could take away sin and bring men back to God again.
Our Savior was the perfect Lamb of God, sent in love.

He walked among men, saved, delivered, and healed.
There was no other greater than He.
His grace He freely gave and, salvation revealed,
His love was the greatest as He died on Calvary's tree.

Grace was unmerited love, unmerited favor;
Given freely, from the heart of God, to fallen man.
Only through the love of God, and riches of His amazing grace,
Are we made righteous; and, by faith, we stand.

His sacrifice still saves those who are lost.
His blood will never lose it's wondrous power.
On the old rugged cross, He paid the great redemption cost.
He is our Redeemer, our Savior, and strong tower.

I was like the lost sheep
Who had wandered from the Good Shepherd's fold.
But, I heard the Master's loving voice and
Answered His plea to let Him redeem my soul.

Jesus is the gift of love, given freely to all men.
His love will set the vilest sinner free.
He's with you 'til the end and will be your dearest Friend.
A gift of love, lifted above, brought hope; that day, at Calvary.

"The blood of Jesus will never lose it's power."
JESUS -- The greatest gift of all. John 3:16
