191. What Wondrous Love Is This

1 What wondrous love is this,
O my soul, O my soul,
What wondrous love is this,
O my soul!
What wondrous love is this
That caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse
for my soul, for my soul,
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.

2 What wondrous love is this,
O my soul, O my soul,
What wondrous love is this,
O my soul!
What wondrous love is this,
That caused the Lord of life
To lay aside His crown
for my soul, for my soul,
To lay aside His crown for my soul.

3 To God and to the Lamb,
I will sing, I will sing,
To God and to the Lamb, I will sing;
To God and to the Lamb
Who is the great I AM,
While millions join the theme,
I will sing, I will sing;
While millions join the theme I will sing.

4 And when from death I'm free,
I'll sing on, I'll sing on,
And when from death I'm free, I'll sing on;
And when from death I'm free,
I'll sing and joyful be,
And through eternity
I'll sing on, I'll sing on,
And through eternity I'll sing on.
