He gave to me a seal

 

  1. He gave to me a seal

Of the great debt I owe

And as He gave, He smiled and said,

”Always, remember Me.”

 

  1. He gave to me a seal

All of my debts He paid

And as He gave, He smiled and said

”Always, remember Me.”

 

  1. I shall treasure the seal

Though, the debt is all paid

The seal told of the love of One

Who paid the debt for me.

 

  1. I looked at it and smiled

Again, I looked and wept

The earnest of His love for me

I’ll ever treasure it

 

  1. It is more than a seal

It is in remembrance

That all the debt of sin was paid

By Lord, Emmanuel. Amen.
