My #LentInMusic, 2017 (Day 2)

Today's selection is "God So Loved the World," from John Stainer's wonderful oratorio, The Crucifixion. (And here's a link to the year's playlist.)

God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish,
But have everlasting life.
For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world,
But that the world through Him might be saved.
