Representative Text

1 Hast thou heard of that wonderful Jesus,
Who dwelt among sinners, a God?
Who in purity walk’d with the vilest,
Dispensing His favors abroad?

O that wonderful, wonderful Jesus!
He left the bright glory above,
On a world in its sin and its ruin,
To pour out His infinite love.

2 Hast thou heard of that wonderful Jesus,
Rejected by sinners of old?
He is waiting today to be gracious,
Yet slighted by numbers untold. [Refrain]

3 Hast thou heard that this wonderful Jesus,
Dwells now with the lowly in heart?
With the humble He walks in communion,
And grace He will freely impart. [Refrain]
