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.

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.

¡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]
