~ A Different Rendition ~
The author of the following is unknown to me.
FOR GOD the Lord of earth and heaven
SO LOVED and longed to see forgiven
THE WORLD in sin and pleasure mad,
THAT HE GAVE the greatest gift He had—
HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON—to take our place
THAT WHOSOEVER oh, what grace!
BELIEVETH placing simple trust
IN HIM the Righteous and the Just
SHOULD NOT PERISH lost in sin
BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE in Him.
~ Robert Lloyd Russell, ABUNDANT LIFE NOW
