Do you wonder I love Jesus

Representative Text

1 I was poor, and sad, and lonely when the Savior came my way;
In the path of sin He found me as He sought for those astray;
From my heart He rolled my burden, paid the price to set me free,
Do you wonder I love Jesus, when He did so much for me?

Refrain:
Do you wonder that I love Him
Who from bondage set me free,
Do you wonder I love Jesus,
When He did so much for me?

2 I was lost amid the darkness, not a friend to guide or cheer,
When to me, a helpless sinner, He in wondrous grace drew near!
In the hands to me extended cruel nail-prints I could see—
Do you wonder I love Jesus, when He did so much for me? [Refrain]

3 I am singing as I journey, for a path of joy is mine;
There is One who never leaves me, clothed with majesty divine.
Some glad day to realms of glory I shall go with Him to be
Do you wonder I love Jesus, when He did so much for me? [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest.
