Translated Hymn by Volbrecht Nagel (#239)

July 22, 2010 at 6:15 pm (Nagel Roots) ()

Verse 1

To us our God His love commends,
When by our sins undone;
That He might spare His enemies,
He would not spare His Son.

Verse 2

His only Son, on whom was placed
His whole delight and love,
Before He formed the earth below,
Or spread the heavens above.

Verse 3

Our sorrows and our guilt to bear,
Our judgement to sustain;
He came, upon the tree to die,
That we might life obtain.

Verse 4

His word assures He’ll quickly come,
For this His brethren pray;
The whole creation for it groans,
Come, Lord, without delay!
