1 I’ll sing of the matchless and wonderful love,
Which God, in His Son, hath proclaimed from above;
‘Tis higher than heaven, more deep than the sea,
And broad as the universe, priceless and free.

I’ll sing of His wonderful love,
His matchless and wonderful love;
‘Tis broad as the universe, priceless and free,
All praise to the Father above.

2 Tho’ countless the sins we have done in the past,
In Love’s mighty sea ev’ry one we may cast;
Above them abideth the sin-cleansing flood,
Atonement of Jesus—His own precious blood. [Refrain] [Refrain]

3 How shall we escape from the sinner’s dark fate,
If we should neglect a salvation so great?
No more in the darkness of sin let us live,
But come to the Saviour who waits to forgive. [Refrain] [Refrain]
