Charles H. Gabriel, 1910 (🔊 pdf nwc).

There’s a message that comes to the soul in its need,
’Tis a wonderful message, and all the world may read.
’Twas spoken for him whosoe’er will give it heed—
I am come that they might have life, and more abundantly.

Refrain

More abundantly, more abundantly,
That they might have life more abundantly;
They might have life, and more abundantly.

’Tis a message that tells of an infinite love,
That could bring One to earth from His throne of light above,
To save us from sin, and His wondrous grace to prove—
I am come that they might have life, and more abundantly.

Refrain

’Tis a message of gladness the world cannot give,
And its fullness of meaning we freely may receive:
’Twas given for him who on Jesus will believe—
I am come that they might have life, and more abundantly.

Refrain
