Lanny Wolfe "FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD" lyrics

Verse One:
God could have chosen to never love again
Fallen man could go his way and die in his sin
But God in His compassion said, “I’ll pay redemption’s price”
So He took on the form of man and became the perfect sacrifice.

Chorus:
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son
That whosoever believeth in Him
Would not perish, should not perish
But they shall have, they shall have everlasting life.

Verse Two:
If riches could have paid the debt, then God could have sold
All the walls of Jasper, all the streets of purest gold
But He knew the price of one lost soul was more than wealth could buy
And if redemption were ever bought only love could really satisfy.
