God Loved Us, So He Sent His Son

A tender, contemplative anthem appropriate for Easter. In the SATB voicing the first verse is sung by men in unison, the second by women with simple harmonies, followed by a verse for men in four-parts. The piece culminates with a stirring verse sung by all voices in rich harmonies. The setting concludes with a gentle return to the first verse text sung by all voices. 

Available in the following versions:

  • SATB and Organ

  • SATB and Piano

  • TTBB and Organ

  • TTBB and Piano


God loved us, so he sent his Son,

Christ Jesus, the atoning One,

To show us by the path he trod

The one and only way to God.


He came as man, though Son of God,

And bowed himself beneath the rod.

He died in holy innocence,

A broken law to recompense.

In word and deed he doth require

My will to his, like son to sire,

Be made to bend, and I, as son,

Learn conduct from the Holy One.

Oh, love effulgent, love divine!

What debt of gratitude is mine,

That in his off’ring I have part

And hold a place within his heart.
