    What manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us that we should be called the sons of God!

    Behold, what love, what boundless love,
    The Father hath bestowed
    On sinners lost, that we should be
    Now called “the sons of God!”
    Refrain
    Behold, what manner of love!
    What manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us,
    That we, that we should be called,
    Should be called the sons of God!
    No longer far from Him but now
    By “precious blood” made nigh,
    Accepted in the “Well beloved,”
    Near to God’s heart we lie.
    Refrain
    What we in glory soon shall be,
    It doth not yet appear;
    But when our precious Lord we see,
    We shall His image bear.
    Refrain
    With such a blessèd hope in view,
    We would more holy be,
    More like our risen, glorious Lord,
    Whose face we soon shall see.
    Refrain

    These days I enjoyed this very much.
