Full Text

1 Can it be that Jesus bought me,
And on the hallowed cross atoned for me,
Loved me, chose me ere I knew Him!
Oh, what a precious, precious Friend is He!

Oh, it is wonderful, very, very wonderful,
All His grace so rich and free!
Oh, it is wonderful, very, very, wonderful,
That my Savior so loves me!

2 Praise His name, He sought and found me,
Sav'd me from wandering and brought me near;
Daily now His grace bestowing,
Jesus is growing unto me more dear. [Chorus]

3 It was years He had been waiting,
Waiting the dawning of the precious hour,
When I should at last be yielding,
Yielding to Jesus ev'ry ransom'd pow'r. [Chorus]

4 As I think of all, I marvel
Why in such patience He my good has sought,
And bestowed His grace upon me,
And in my spirit such a change has wrought. [Chorus]
