1. Do you know Jesus,
Our Lord, our Savior,
Jesus the Son of God?
Have you ever seen Him,
Or shared of His favor?
Jesus the Son of God.

O sweet Wonder!
O sweet Wonder!
Jesus the Son of God;
How I adore Thee!
O how I love Thee!
Jesus the Son of God.

2. God gave Him, a ransom,
Our souls to recover;
Jesus the Son of God.
His blood made us worthy
His Spirit to hover;
Jesus the Son of God. [Refrain]

3. O who would reject Him,
Despise or forsake Him,
Jesus the Son of God?
O who ever sought Him,
And He would not take Him?
Jesus the Son of God. [Refrain]

4. If you will accept Him
And trust and believe Him,
Jesus the Son of God,
Your soul will exalt Him,
And never will leave Him;
Jesus the Son of God. [Refrain]

5. Then some day from Heaven,
On clouds of bright glory,
Jesus the Son of God
Will come for His jewels,
Most precious and holy,
Jesus the Son of God. [Refrain]
