11341. It Reaches Me

1 Oh, this uttermost salvation!
’Tis a fountain full and free,
Pure, exhaustless, ever flowing,
Wondrous grace! it reaches me!

Refrain:
It reaches me! it reaches me!
Wondrous grace! it reaches me!
Pure, exhaustless, ever flowing,
Wondrous grace! it reaches me!

2 How amazing God’s compassion,
That so a vile a worm should prove
This stupendous bliss of Heaven,
This unmeasured wealth of love! [Refrain]

3 Jesus, Savior, I adore Thee!
Now Thy love I will proclaim;
I will tell the blessèd story,
I will magnify Thy name! [Refrain]
