Amazing Love 482

Tune: Thomas Franklin Sanders, 1950
Alto: Mrs. Euva Priscilla (Renfroe) Sanders, 1950
Lyrics: Parkinson's A Selection of Hymns and Sacred Songs, 1809
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
When Jesus for His people died,
The holy law was satisfied;
Its awful penalties He bore;
It can command nor curse no more.

Chorus:

Amazing love how rich how freeŚ
That Christ should die for such as we;
From hence the holiest duties flow,
Of saints above and saints below.

He having suffered in their stead,
The law in cov'nant form is dead;
He rules them with a gentle sway,
And they with sweet delight obey.

(Chorus)
