[flute intro]

O what grace and peace we have in Christ
That comes from knowing Him;
Who despite our sin and waywardness
Has borne away our sin.
For when we repent and turn to Him
By grace we are forgiven;
O what love and joy we have in Christ
That comes from knowing Him!

With a heart so filled with Jesus’ love
His grace and peace within.
We love Christ because He first loved us
And live to follow Him! 

~

From His heavenly throne the Son of God
Came down to earth to dwell
Where He suffered bled and died for us
To save us all from Hell.
Jesus our Redeemer, Savior, Friend
In whom we can depend;
He who died for us and lives for us
Whose love will never end!

With a heart so filled with Jesus’ love
His grace and peace within.
We love Christ because He first loved us
And live to follow Him! 

~

He commands us that we share His love
That others too may come
To receive by faith His sacrifice
And have their sins forgiven.
He has earned for us eternal life
From death we have been raised;
Jesus is deserving of our love
And everlasting praise!

With a heart so filled with Jesus’ love
His grace and peace within.
We love Christ because He first loved us
And live to follow Him!

“We love him, because he first loved us.” 
[1 John 4:19]
