Sae think o’ the love that lang lo’ed tae save us;
Wha cam here a stranger wi’ kindness tae a’.
He healed up the broken hearts o’ a’ that received Him
The puir and the needy, the Lord blessed them a’

He’s aye the same Jesus, the very same Jesus,
There’s no yin will e’er say He sent them awa’;
For whosoever will He will gladly receive ye,
For He so lo’ed to save us, He de’ed for us a’.

When blin Bartemeus. He heard Jesus passing,
He cried out for mercy, his cloak he let fa’;
Some folk they reviled him, but Jesus said bring him,
He cam to the Saviour – that moment he saw.

When the Saviour was dining wi’ Simon, the debtor
Mary slipped in, at His feet she did fa’;
The Pharisees frowned at the heart broken sinner,
But Jesus forgi’ed her in the face o’ them a’.

Nicodemus the ruler, an little Zacchaeus,
The man o’ the tombs, an I canna tell a’;
The woman at Sychar, and a’ that cam tae Him,
The thief on the cross, the Lord saved them a’.
