See, O see, what love the Father - See what love
(Carl Johann Philipp Spitta/Richard Massie/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

See what love.

1. See, O see, what love the Father
  hath bestowed upon our race,
how he bends with sweet compassion
  over us his beaming face!
See how he his best and dearest
  for the very worst hath given,
his own Son for us poor sinners,
  see, O see, the love of heaven!

2. See, O see, what love the Saviour
  also hath on us bestowed,
how he bled for us and suffered,
  how he bare our heavy load!
On the cross and in the garden
  oh how sore was his distress!
Is not this a love that passeth
  aught that tongue can e'er express?

3. See, O see, what love is shown us
  also by the Holy Ghost,
how he strives with us poor sinners
  even when we sin the most,
teaching, comforting, correcting,
  where he sees it needful is!
O what heart should not be thankful
  for a threefold love like this?

Richard Massie, Lyra Domestica I, 1863, 50.
Translated from the German Sehet, sehet, welche Liebe - Sehet, welch eine Liebe!
of Carl Johann Philipp Spitta.
