So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 I have found a great salvation, in a wondrous way,
By the cross, God’s revelation, in a wondrous way;
When I came to Christ confessing
All my guilt, He gave the blessing,
Now His pardon I’m possessing, in a wondrous way.

Refrain:
In a wondrous way, a wondrous way,
Jesus saves and keeps me in a wondrous way,
In a wondrous way, a wondrous way,
Jesus saves and keeps me in a wondrous way.

2 Jesus heals the broken hearted in a wondrous way;
When all comfort has departed, in a wondrous way;
Closer than a friend or brother,
Like the tender touch of mother,
He can help you as no other, in a wondrous way. [Refrain]

3 When the tempter would enslave me, in a wondrous way
Jesus sends the pow’r to save me, in a wondrous way;
I can trust Him to defend me,
Anywhere that he may send me,
He has promised to befriend me, in a wondrous way. [Refrain]

4 By and by He will transform me, in a wondrous way,
To a higher realm conform me in a wondrous way;
Things of time can enter never,
In that home my joy to sever,
I shall dwell with Christ forever, in a wondrous way. [Refrain]
