1 Jesus, and didst Thou leave the sky,
To bear our griefs and woes?
And didst Thou bleed, and groan and die,
For Thy rebellious foes?

Refrain:
O ’twas wonderful, wonderful love,
That brought Him from heaven above,
As a ransom to die on the tree,
To save a poor sinner like me.

2 Well might the heav’ns with wonder view
A love so strange as thine!
No thought of angels ever knew
Compassion so divine! [Refrain]

3 Is there a heart that will not bend
To Thy divine control?
Descend, O Sovereign Love, descend,
And melt that stubborn soul. [Refrain]

4 O may our willing hearts confess
Thy sweet, Thy gentle sway;
Glad captives of Thy matchless grace,
Thy righteous rule obey. [Refrain]
