609. Wonderful Grace of Jesus

1 Wonderful grace of Jesus,
greater than all my sin;
how shall my tongue describe it?
where shall its praise begin?
Taking away my burden,
setting my spirit free;
for the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Refrain:
Wonderful the matchless grace of Jesus,
deeper than the mighty rolling sea;
higher than the mountain, sparkling like a fountain,
all-sufficient grace for me, for even me;
broader than the scope of my transgressions,
greater far than all my sin and shame.
O magnify the precious name of Jesus,
praise His name!

2 Wonderful grace of Jesus,
reaching to all the lost,
by it I have been pardoned,
saved to the uttermost;
chains have been torn asunder,
giving me liberty,
for the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me. [Refrain]

3 Wonderful grace of Jesus,
reaching the most defiled,
by its transforming power
ransoming God’s dear child,
purchasing peace and heaven
for all eternity -
and the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me. [Refrain]
