"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." - John 3:16 "Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know is, because it did not know Him." - 1 John 3:1 The second stanza of the song, "I Stand Amazed in the Presence" by Charles Gabriel goes like this, "For me it was in the garden He prayed, 'Not My will, but Thine;' He had no tears for His own griefs, but sweat drops of blood for mine. How marvelous! how wonderful! And my song shall ever be; How marvelous! how wonderful! Is my Savior's love for me! Our Lord had no tears of His own griefs. He was sinless, and yet the sin of the whole world was laid upon Him and He died for you and me. It was the love for you and me that held Christ on the cross. He suffered and died so we should not perish but have everlasting life. Praise the Lord!
