How Great the Wisdom and the Love

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 195

1. How great the wisdom and the love That filled the courts on high And sent the Savior from above To suffer, bleed, and die!

2. His precious blood he freely spilt; His life he freely gave, A sinless sacrifice for guilt, A dying world to save.

3. By strict obedience Jesus won The prize with glory rife: “Thy will, O God, not mine be done,” Adorned his mortal life.

4. He marked the path and led the way, And ev’ry point defines To light and life and endless day Where God’s full presence shines.

5. In mem’ry of the broken flesh We eat the broken bread And witness with the cup, afresh, Our faith in Christ, our Head.

6. How great, how glorious, how complete Redemption’s grand design, Where justice, love, and mercy meet In harmony divine!
