Representative Text

1 I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,
Confused at the grace that so fully He proffers me;
I tremble to know that for me He was crucified -
That for me, a sinner, He suffered, He bled, and died.

Chorus:
O it is wonderful -
That he should care for me,
Enough to die for me!
O it is wonderful -
Wonderful to me.

2 I marvel that He would descend from His throne divine
To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine;
That He should extend His great love unto such as I -
Sufficient to own, to redeem and to justify. [Chorus]

3 I think of His hands pierced and bleeding to pay the debt!
Such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?
No, no! I will praise and adore at the mercy-seat,
Until at the glorified throne I kneel at His feet. [Chorus]
