Why is it God can love us so-
Such sinful creatures, sunk so low,
And ruined by the fearful fall?
Have we some virtue after all?
Ah! no, there's naught of good within
Ourselves, but only shame and sin;
'Tis but the grace of God above
Makes us beloved-for God is love.
His grace is greater than our sin-
So great he died our souls to win;
Praise God! Though sin in us be found,
His grace doth e're much more abound.
