1 Jesus came down my ransom to be;
O it was wonderful love!
For out of the Father’s heart he came,
To die for me on a cross of shame,
And from sin’s bondage to reclaim;
O it was wonderful love!

Refrain:
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful love,
Coming to me from Heaven above,
Filling me, thrilling me through and through;
O it was wonderful love!

2 Clear to faith’s vision the cross reveals
Beautiful actions of love;
And all that by grace e’en I may be
When saved, to serve him eternally.
He came, he died, for you and me;
O it was wonderful love!

3 His death’s a claim, his love has a plea;
O it is wonderful love!
Ungrateful was I to slight thy call,
But, Lord, now I come, before thee fall,
I give myself, I give up all,
All for thy wonderful love.
