A Hymn: What Is Very Scarce to Do

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days


Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

Let Us with a Gladsome Mind (Monkland)

The Composed Song

1. God hath also shown his love

He has shown the greatest love

When he sent his son to the world

To even die for our sins

2. Very rarely will you find

Anyone who ‘ll want to die

Even for a righteous man

Who’s present in society

3. But even for a good man

Peradventure we ‘ll see someone

Who will dare to also lay

His soul down for his own

4. When we couldn’t find someone

Who will die for a righteous man

Nor for a good man on earth

How many more we who are sinners

5. Even in this hath we find

Incomparable love that God

Even hath for human race

Because everyone has sinned

6. Everyone living on earth

Has sinned and has fallen short

Of the glory of the Lord God

Sin has made us filthy to him

7. But the greatest love of God

Hath been shown to us sinners

Even in this also that

Christ hath died ‘ven for our sins

8. This incomparable love

In heaven and on the earth

That a man lays even his soul

Down for us even the sinners

9. Even this highest grace that

Hath appeared unto all men

You should please accept this grace

So that you ‘ll not be condemned
