1 I came to Jesus with my sin,
What a wonderful Savior.
My heart he kindly entered in,
What a wonderful Savior!

Refrain:
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus!
What a Savior! what a Savior!
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus!
He saves me now!

2 Tho’ all defiled and vile within
What a wonderful Savior.
Tho’ full of evil and unclean,
What a wonderful Savior! [Refrain]

3 Rejoicing now each day I am;
What a wonderful Savior.
And singing “Glory to the Lamb!”
What a wonderful Savior! [Refrain]

4 My soul is fill’d with perfect peace
What a wonderful Savior.
And finds in him its happiness,
What a wonderful Savior! [Refrain]
