God so Loved the World

This Hymn, by Stainer, is a familiar Choir Anthem.

It is based on the Scripture verses John 3:16-17, so you will immediately recognize the words.

           God so loved the world
           that He gave His only begotten Son
           that whosoever believieth in Him
           shall 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.

Doubtless many of you old timer Choir folks have sung this.

If so you will find yourself humming or singing along.

The rest of you (who are old enough to remember when Choirs did serious anthems) will also fondly recall this special Anthem. 

And if you are too young to have ever heard this wonderful anthem, listen up as you are going to love this.

So with that by way of introduction and explanation,
