1 How my soul with holy rapture thrills,
When I think of Jesus’ love for me!
And my heart with adoration fills,
Thinking now of dark Calvary.

Love! Love! Wondrous love divine!
Love! Love! Jesus’ love is mine!
Love! Love! Boundless, full and free!
Jesus’ wondrous love for me.

2 Tho’ unworthy of His love and grace,
Jesus sought me in my guilt and sin;
And upon the cross He took my place,
There my pardon complete to win. [Chorus]

3 All the love I have to offer Him
A reflection weak can only be,
Of His glorious love that dwells within,
Since from sin He has made me free. [Chorus]
