WITH ARMS OPENED WIDE, by Carl Gooch

WITH ARMS OPENED WIDE

With arms opened wide

You came to save me…

Love you did not hide

But freely gave to me.

Into this world you came

For a sinner such as I…

I was filled with sin’s stain

But for my sin you died.

You came into my night

Bringing love and mercy…

You made everything right

And gave new life to me!

With arms opened wide,

You came to save me…

Lord, you didn’t hide

But freely gave to me.

There is no way I can repay

What you did for me…

For all my sins’ price you paid,

Being nailed to that tree.
