Representative Text

1 It bro’t Him from His home so bright,
The wonderful love of Jesus,
To fill a darkened world with light,
My Savior’s wonderful love.

My Savior’s wonderful love,
My constant these shall be;
My Savior’s wonderful, wonderful love,
In time and eternity.

2 It sought and found and won my heart,
The wonderful love of Jesus,
And mine is now the “better part,”
My Savior’s wonderful love. [Refrain]

3 The priceless gift is free to all,
The wonderful love of Jesus;
They will receive, who on him call,
My Savior’s wonderful love. [Refrain]

4 And it will bring him back again,
The wonderful love of Jesus,
Upon the earth in peace to reign,
My Savior’s wonderful love. [Refrain]
