537. How Marvelous! (Cuán grande amor)

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

Refrain:
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. [Refrain]

3 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. [Refrain]

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

1 Que Cristo me haya amado
tan malo como yo fui,
me deja maravillado,
pues él se entregó por mí.

Estribillo:
¡Oh cuán grande amor! ¡Oh cuán grande amor!
Cantaré por siempre aquí.
¡Oh, cuán grande amor! ¡Oh cuán grande amor!
Pues por él salvado fui.

2 Oró por mí en el huerto:
"No se haga mi voluntad".
Y todo dquel sufrimiento
causado fue por mi mal. [Estribillo]

3 Por mí se hizo pecado,
mis culpas su amor llevó.
Murió en la cruz olvidado,
mas mi alma él rescató. [Estribillo]

4 Cuando al final con los santos
su gloria contemplaré,
con gratitud y con cantos
por siempre le alabaré. [Estribillo]
