Behold, my soul, the love of God!

Behold the grace most free!

Before all worlds His purpose stood,

His heart was fixed on me!

Elected by eternal love,

The covenant firm and sure,

The Triune God agreed in love

Salvation to secure.


My soul was given to the Son,

He promised to redeem;

By blood and righteousness,

His own, He would my soul reclaim.


In the due time Immanuel came,

To live and die for me:

He lives today and bears my name;

Christ is my Surety!


In love He sent His Spirit down,

Who gave me life and grace:

He drew me and I followed on

My Saviour to embrace.


Now I rejoice in covenant love,

Amazing grace I sing:

I now am conquered by His love.

My Savior is my King!


(Tune: The Lord's My Shepherd)
