BY JOHN C. BALL.
God loved the world and sent His only Son
To deeds no mortal could have done,
To deeds of love mankind will ever sing
’Til earth’s remotest bounds shall ring
With melodies of peace—good will to me:
Christ loved the world! and for His love, has died
That Life forever might abide,
And rise triumphant from the wrecks of clay,
When God shall usher in His day
Of perfect peace and perfect will in men:
God loved the world! and, for His love, the bands
Which bound His Son, by His own hands
Were riven from the voiceless tomb; and now,
In heaven and earth, his children bow
Before his face and praise His love to me:
