16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.(KJV)

1. God loved the world so that He gave 
His only Son the lost to save 
That all who would in Him believe 
Should everlasting life receive. 

2. Christ Jesus is the Ground of faith, 
Who was made flesh and suffered death; 
All that confide in Him alone 
Are built on this chief Corner-stone. 

3. God would not have the sinner die, 
His Son with saving grace is nigh, 
His Spirit in the Word doth teach 
How man the blessed goal may reach. 

4. Be of good cheer, for God’s own Son 
Forgives all sins which thou hast done; 
Thou’rt justified by Jesus’ blood, 
Thy Baptism grants the highest good. 

5. If thou be sick, if death draw near, 
This truth thy troubled heart can cheer: 
Christ Jesus saves my soul from death, 
That is the firmest ground of faith. 

6. Glory to God the Father, Son, 
And Holy Spirit, Three in One! 
To Thee, O blessed Trinity, 
Be praise now and eternally!
