Full Text

1 Born in a manger, lowly and poor,
Willing the world’s dark frowns to endure;
Came the dear Lord, our Saviour to be,
Wonderful love for thee and me.

Refrain:
Wonderful love, wonderful love,
Wonderful love for thee and me;
Wonderful love, wonderful love,
Wonderful love for thee and me.

2 Tell of His love to those who are sad,
Bring them the news so wondrous and glad;
Tell them that Christ their helper would be,
Wonderful love for thee and me. [Refrain]

3 Let ev’ry soul from near and from far
Follow the rays of Bethlehem’s star,
Till it shall shine o’er Calvary’s tree,
Wonderful love for thee and me. [Refrain]
