RETURN FOR CHRIST'S SUFFERING




I gave My life for thee,
My precious blood I shed,
That thou might ransomed be,
and raised up from the dead
|:I gave, I gave My life for thee,
what hast thou given for Me?:|


My Fatherís house of light,
My glory circled throne
I left for earthly night,
for wanderings sad and lone;
|:I left, I left it all for thee,
hast thou left aught for Me?:|


I suffered much for thee,
more than thy tongue can tell,
Of bitterest agony,
to rescue thee from hell.
|:Iíve borne, Iíve borne it all for thee,
what hast thou borne for Me?:|


And I have brought to thee,
down from My home above,
Salvation full and free,
My pardon and My love;
|:I bring, I bring rich gifts to thee,
what hast thou brought to Me?:|
