Full Text

1 Give me a sight, O Savior!
Of Thy wondrous love to me,
Of the love that brought Thee down to earth
To die on Calvary.

Refrain:
O make me understand it!
Help me to take it in!
What it meant to Thee, the Holy One,
To bear away my sin.

2 Was it the nails, O Savior!
That bound Thee to the tree?
Nay, ’twas Thine everlasting love,
Thy love for me, for me. [Refrain]

3 O wonder of all wonders!
That through Thy death for me
My open sins, my secret sins,
Can all forgiven be. [Refrain]

4 Then melt my heart, O Savior!
Bend me, yea, break me down
Until I own Thee Conqueror,
And Lord and Sovereign crown. [Refrain]
