Representative Text

1 I have heard of a wonderful Savior,
Who died upon Calvary;
And how souls now despairing in darkness,
Might the light of His glory see.

Wonderful love,
Wonderful love,
He saves my soul by pow’r divine;
He fills my life with peace sublime;
Wonderful love,
Oh, wonderful love.

2 Oh, the wonderful love of the Savior,
His goodness let us proclaim;
How He loves, saves and keeps those forever
Who trust in His matchless name. [Refrain]

3 Listen now to the voice of the Savior,
When pressed with earth’s toil and care;
He will speak words of warning and counsel,
When you go to the Lord in prayer. [Refrain]

4 When you’ve given your life to the Savior,
And He is your King of kings,
He will keep you from sin and all danger,
And will shadow you ‘neath His wings. [Refrain]
