Written in Red

(Book 11, Chapter 15)

(sung by Salvation Army International Staff Songsters)


In letters of crimson, God wrote His love
On a hillside so long, long ago;
For you and for me Jesus died,
And love's greatest story was told.

I love you, I love you
That's what Calvary said;
I love you, I love you,
I love you, written in red.

Down through the ages, God wrote His love
With the same hands that suffered and bled;
Giving all he had to give,
A message so easily read.

I love you, I love you,
That's what Calvary said;
I love you, I love you,
I love you, written in red.

Oh, precious is the flow, that makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus.


I love you, I love you
That's what Calvary said;
I love you, I love you,
I love you, written in red.
