669. Wonderful Love

1 Come, let us sing of a wonderful love,
Tender and true, tender and true;
Out of the heart of the Father above,
Streaming to me and to you:
Wonderful love, wonderful love
Dwells in the heart of the Father above.

2 Jesus, the Saviour, this gospel to tell
Joyfully came, joyfully came -
Came with the helpless and hopeless to dwell
Sharing their sorrow and shame:
Seeking the lost, seeking the lost;
Saving, redeeming at measureless cost.

3 Jesus is seeking the wanderers yet;
Why do they roam? why do they roam?
Love only waits to forgive and forget;
Home, weary wanderers, home!
Wonderful love, wonderful love
Dwells in the heart of the Father above.

4 Come to my heart, O thou wonderful Love!
Come and abide, come and abide;
Lifting my life till it rises above
Envy and falsehood and pride:
Seeking to be, seeking to be
Lowly and humble, a learner of thee.

Amen.
