35. Great God of Wonders!

1 Great God of wonders! all thy ways
are matchless, godlike and divine;
but the fair glories of thy grace
More godlike and unrivaled shine.
Who is a pardoning God like thee?
And who has grace so rich and free?

2 Such dire offenses to forgive,
such guilty, daring souls to spare:
this is thy grand prerogative,
and none shall in the honor share!
Who is a pardoning God like thee?
And who has grace so rich and free?

3 O may this strange, this matchless grace,
this god-like miracle of love
fill the whole earth with grateful praise,
And all th'angelic choirs above,
Who is a pardoning God like thee?
And who has grace so rich and free?
