For God So Loved the World

Song Lyrics
FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD

Verse 1
What did it take for God to make
His choice to save us all
What did it cost to save the lost
Even the ones who chose to fall
How wondrous is the thought that He
Could love so ever willingly
A world of sinful men like me
From sin He set us free.

Verse 2
What love it took for God to send
His Son in place of man
Upon the Cross at Calvary
Christ died for you and me
I could never comprehend
The love it took for Him to mend
Broken hearts and broken men
He loved us to the end.

Chorus
οὕτως γὰρ ἠγάπησεν ὁ θεὸς τὸν κόσμον,
ὥστε τὸν υἱὸν τὸν μονογενῆ ἔδωκεν,
ἵνα πᾶς ὁ πιστεύων εἰς αὐτὸν
μὴ ἀπόληται ἀλλ᾿ ἔχῃ
ζωὴν αἰώνιον
For God so loved the world.

Verse 3
Amazing is the love of God
Who paid the price for sin
For in our place His Son He sent
our hearts He changed within
For all who would believe in Him
eternal life He freely gives
How deeply we must learn to love
our Father God above

Chorus
οὕτως γὰρ ἠγάπησεν ὁ θεὸς τὸν κόσμον,
ὥστε τὸν υἱὸν τὸν μονογενῆ ἔδωκεν,
ἵνα πᾶς ὁ πιστεύων εἰς αὐτὸν
μὴ ἀπόληται ἀλλ᾿ ἔχῃ
ζωὴν αἰώνιον
For God so loved the world.

Bridge
For God so loved the world
That He gave His only begotten Son
That whosoever believes in Him shall not perish
But have everlasting life

Chorus
οὕτως γὰρ ἠγάπησεν ὁ θεὸς τὸν κόσμον,
ὥστε τὸν υἱὸν τὸν μονογενῆ ἔδωκεν,
ἵνα πᾶς ὁ πιστεύων εἰς αὐτὸν
μὴ ἀπόληται ἀλλ᾿ ἔχῃ
ζωὴν αἰώνιον
For God so loved the world.

Descant
God so loved the world
He gave His only Son
That those who believe
Just believe
Truly they shall not die
But have eternal life, everlasting
Come now to the Throne of Grace,
For God so loved the world.
