Lyrics

That is how the Father gave—
Freely, freely, freely;
That’s how Jesus came to save—
Freely, freely, freely.
’Twas His mercy took us in;
Dark in deed our lot had been.
Had He not atoned for sin
Freely, freely, freely.

So to Him ourselves we give—
Freely, freely, freely;
For His sake henceforth to live—
Freely, freely, freely.
Lord, our selfishness destroy!
Time, and strength and wealth and joy,
For Thy cause will we employ
Freely, freely, freely.

Let the living waters flow—
Freely, freely, freely;
Let the Gospel message go—
Freely, freely, freely.
That’s a glorious work to do!
To the Great Commission true;
Give as He has given you—
Freely, freely, freely.
