Easter Poems, God Loves Us
God Loved Us, So He Sent His Son
Edward P. Kimball
God loved us, so he sent his Son,
Christ Jesus the atoning One,
To show us by the path he trod
The one and only way to God.
He came as man, though Son of God,
And bowed himself beneath the rod.
He died in holy innocence,
A broken law to recompense.
Oh, love effulgent, love divine!
What debt of gratitude is mine,
That in his offering I have part
And hold a place within his heart.
