What Was It, Blessed God

By Miss A. Taylor (1782-1866)

Meter:  6.6.6.6.8.8.

WHAT was it, blessed God,
Led Thee to give Thy Son,
To yield Thy Well-beloved
For us by sin undone?
'Twas love unbounded led Thee thus
To give Thy Well-beloved for us.

What led Thy Son, O God,
To come from heav'n on high,
To shed His precious blood,
To suffer and to die?
'Twas love, unbounded love to us,
Led Him to die and suffer thus.

What moved Thee to impart
Thy Spirit from above,
Therewith to fill our heart
With heav'nly peace and love?
'Twas love, unbounded love to us,
Moved Thee to give Thy Spirit thus.

What love to Thee we owe,
Our God, for all Thy grace!
Our hearts may well outflow
In everlasting praise.
Gladly, O God, we praise Thee thus
For all Thy boundless love to us.
