184. Wonderful Grace of Jesus

1 Wonderful grace of Jesus,
greater than all my sin;
how shall my tongue describe it,
where shall its praise begin?
Taking away my burden,
setting my spirit free--
the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Refrain:
Wonderful the matchless grace of Jesus,
deeper than the mighty rolling sea;
higher than the mountain,
sparkling like a fountain,
all sufficient for even me;
broader than the scope of my transgressions,
greater far than all my sin and shame;
oh, magnify the precious name of Jesus,
praise his name!

2 Wonderful grace of Jesus,
reaching to all the lost,
by it I have been pardoned,
saved to the uttermost.
Chains have been torn asunder,
giving me liberty--
the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me. [Refrain]

3 Wonderful grace of Jesus,
reaching the most defiled,
by its transforming power
I now am God’s dear child.
Purchasing peace and heaven
for all eternity--
the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me. [Refrain]
