1 He sought and found me lost in sin;
This wonderful Christ is mine;
He gave me joy and peace within;
This wonderful Christ is mine.

Refrain:
This wonderful Christ is mine
This wonderful Christ is mine,
I’ll sing his praise thro’ endless days;
This wonderful Christ is mine.

2 From sorrow I have found release;
A wonderful joy is mine;
‘Tis joy that nevermore will cease;
A wonderful joy is mine. [Refrain]

3 O matchless love! with me to dwell!
This wonderful love is mine;
My tongue shall ne’er refuse to tell
Of wonderful love divine. [Refrain]

4 Since Christ my Savior dwells with me,
A wonderful life is mine;
From dark despair my soul is free;
A wonderful life is mine. [Refrain]
