The Father Gives!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

The Father gives, O how He gives,
He gives to us abundantly;
To us His children whom He loves,
He gives and gives relentlessly.

He gave to us His only Son,
To die for us upon the cross;
He died, He shed His blood to win,
Wonder, O wonder of His grace.

He gave to us the Holy Ghost,
New power, new life, a living hope;
To serve, declare, His love to boast,
His word and will through grace to keep.

He gave to us His many gifts,
To preach His name and prophesy;
To heal the sick and mend the rifts,
The gospel balm to souls apply.

He gave to us the gift of heaven,
The gates of glory opened wide;
Welcomed to share in Jesus’ gain,
Praise God! We’re on the winning side.

(Tune: Duke St; LM)
