1 In ages agone God gave His dear Son,
In wonderful, wonderful love;
IN ages to come the ransomed will sing
Of wonderful, wonderful love.

‘Twas wonderful love,
‘Twas wonderful love,
God gave His dear Son,
For you and for me.

2 My Saviour hath died my friends to redeem,
In wonderful, wonderful love;
My Saviour is mine, and I know I am His,
In wonderful, wonderful love. [Refrain]

3 To banish the gloom He entered the tomb,
In wonderful, wonderful love;
Then rose from the grave His people to save,
In wonderful, wonderful love. [Refrain]

4 Then up to His throne the Saviour was borne,
In wonderful, wonderful love;
He’s pleading for thee, for you and for me,
In wonderful, wonderful love. [Refrain]

5 His pleading soon done then Jesus will come,
In wonderful, wonderful love;
Eternal life give where saints ever live
In wonderful, wonderful love. [Refrain]
