Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

95. My Savior's Love

1 I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean.

Chorus:
How marvelous! how wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! how wonderful!
Is my Savior's love for me!

2 For me it was in the garden
He prayed, "Not My will, but Thine."
He had no tears for His own griefs,
But sweat-drops of blood for mine. [Chorus]

3 In pity angels beheld Him,
And came from the world of light
To comfort Him in the sorrows
He bore for my soul that night. [Chorus]

4 He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own.
He bore the burden to Calv'ry
And suffered and died alone. [Chorus]

4 When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see,
'Twill be my joy thru the ages
To sing of His love for me. [Chorus]
