Because He Loved Us

by

Pastor Cornelius R. Stam

 

 

Why did the Lord of glory
Leave His heav’nly home,
To come to earth and suffer here
For wrongs He had not done?

 

Why did He go to Calv’ry
To bear the shame and loss,
And give His life for sinners vile
Upon th’ accursed cross?

 

Why?…Because He loved us,
And longed that we might be
His very own — not only now,
But through eternity.
— C.R.S.
