What Love He Gave

Oh what love my Savior gave
Oh what He did for me
Oh what a sacrifice He made
When He died on calvary's tree

How could someone love me so
To do this mighty deed
To suffer such an agony
The nails in His hands and feet

The stripes they laid upon His back
The crown of thorns upon His head
They spit on Him and mocked Him
As He knelt there and bled.

Theres nothing that I could ever do
To deserve this kind of love
But yet He gave this gift to me
To show His Fathers love.

One day I'll meet Him face to face
When He comes to take us home
I want to kiss His hands and feet
And thank Him for His love.
