FOR GOD SO LOVED

Terry and Barbi Franklin

Forever they were banished from their paradise
God passed through Eden's garden gates alone
But His compassion wrote the pages
Unfolding through the ages
Of a love that remains the greatest ever known

For God so loved that He gave His only Son
To suffer agony on a hill called Calvary
Heaven's mercy reached my heart and bore my pain
Hope was born through sacred blood
For God so loved

Shouts of praise were heard throughout Jerusalem
As Jesus humbly passed through Zion's gates
Then the gloom of Calvary's sorrow
Dashed hope of bright tomorrows,
When the heart of the loving Father turned away

For God so loved that He gave His only Son
To suffer agony on a hill called Calvary
Heaven's mercy reached my heart and bore my pain
Hope was born through sacred blood
For God so loved

It seemed that all was over
When they placed Him in the grave
But death's victory march was ended
On that Resurrection Day

For God so loved that He gave His only Son
To suffer agony on a hill called Calvary
Heaven's mercy reached my heart and bore my pain
Hope was born through sacred blood
For God so loved

  2. Sorry it's taken me so long to get back with you. I guess I haven't done very well keeping up with my comments. To answer your question, yes, I have it in a songbook. If you'll send me a request for it at dana@danarongione.com, I'll see if I can get you a copy.
