GIVE me a sight, O Saviour,
   Of Thy wondrous love to me,
Of the love that brought Thee down to earth,
    To die on Calvary.
O make me understand it,
    Help me to take it in,
What it meant to Thee, the Holy One,
    To bear away my sin.
2  Was it the nails, O Saviour,
    That bound Thee to the tree?
No, ’twas Thine everlasting love,
    Thy love for me, for me.
3  O wonder of all wonders,
    That through Thy death for me
My open sins, my secret sins,
    Can all forgiven be!
4  Then melt my heart, O Saviour,
    Bend me and break me down,
Until I own Thee Conqueror,
    And Lord and Sovereign crown.
Katherine Agnes May Kelly, 1869-1942
