John 3:16–17 (Listen)
For God So Loved the World
16 “For God so loved the world,1 that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
Hymn: TLH 105, st. 1,6,7: Praise God the Lord, Ye Sons of Men
1. Praise God the Lord, ye sons of men,
Before His highest throne;
Today He opens heaven again
And gives us His own Son.
6. A wondrous change which He doth make!
He takes our flesh and blood,
And He conceals for sinners’ sake
His majesty of God.
7. He serves that I a lord may be;
A great exchange indeed!
Could Jesus’ love do more for me
To help me in my need?
