HAVE you seen the crucified?
O wondrous love!
Do you know for all he died?
O wondrous love!
Have you seen his thorn-crowned brow?
Have you felt the crimson now?
Do you his salvation know?
O wondrous love!

2 Do you know your sins forgiven?
O wondrous love!
Have you had a taste of Heaven?
O wondrous love!
Has his love cast out your fears?
Has he wiped away your tears?
At his word Hell disappears;
O wondrous love!

3 Is your heart now full of joy?
O wondrous love!
Have you peace naught can destroy?
O wondrous love!
Is not this salvation grand?
May it spread on every hand
E’en to the most distant land;
O wondrous love!

4 To the north, south, east and west,
O wondrous love!
Some have heard, but tell the rest;
O wondrous love!
Vast the curse and great the fall,
Jesus Christ has died for all,
We will every nation call;
O wondrous love!
