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.

Refrain:
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 someday 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]
