Hi Jerry, are these the words you're looking for?

For God so loved the world
He gave His only Son
To die on Calvary
From sin to set me free
One day He's coming back
What glory that will be
Wonderful His love to me

God bless,
Yolanda

Jerry,
The song that came to my mind is by Brian Free & Assurance.

cho.
For God so loved that He gave His only Son
to suffer agony on a hill called Calvary
Heaven's.....................my heart and bore my pain
Hope was.................for God so loved

I can't remember some of the lyrics, but maybe this will help.

VERSE 1
Forever they were banished from their paradise,
God passed through Eden's garden gates alone;
But his compassion wrote the pages unfolding through the ages,
Of a love that remains the greatest ever known.
CHORUS
For God so loved that He gaaave His only Son,
To suffer agony on a hill called Calvary;
Heaven's mercy reached my heart and bore my pain,
Hope was born throught scared blood for God so loved.
VERSE 2
Shouts of praise were heard thoughout Jersalem
As Jesus humbly passed through Zion's gates;
Then the gloom of Calv'ry sorrows dashed hopes of bright tomorrows,
When the heart of the loving Father turned away.
CHORUS
Bridge
Well, it seems that all was over when they placed Him in the grave;
But death's victory march was ended on that Resurrection Day!
CHORUS
TAG
Hope was born through scared blood for God so loved.

Jerry,

Here are the correct lyrics:
For God so Loved the World, Words by: Frances Townsend

For God so loved the World , He gave His only Son,
To die on Calvary's tree, From sin to set me free;
Some day He's coming back, What glory that will be!
Wonderful His love to me.

Cool This song plays over and over in my mind.

I am so thrilled to find this. I learned this song from a Bible teacher in my first grade public school classroom *gasp* in 1953. I remember it like it was yesterday. I can play it by ear on piano but would love to find the sheet music.

Does anyone know where I could find the sheet music?

Thank you. I'm also remembering (I have a lot of years to bring into that mix!) that at one time I believe I had that in an old Singspiration book. Now to dig through all my bins of music...I have printed the one from the site you gave me, so at least I have that. I am creating a mini book of my early elementary years, and that song is a very vivid part of my memory of first grade. Thanks again.

Thanks - I also have been looking in vain for this song and the music - this is such a help!

we used to sing other verses to that -

He came unto His own;
His own received Him not
But to those who did believe
the power did receive
to be the sons of God
by trusting in His name
I'm so glad that Jesus came
