1 Jesus will save us in that great day,
Wonderful love of Jesus!
If we are faithful, His word obey,
Wonderful love of Jesus!

Wonderful love, wonderful love,
Wonderful love of Jesus;
Surely we’ll dwell in that home above,
Wonderful love of Jesus!

2 Following Jesus where’er we roam,
Wonderful love of Jesus!
Surely He’ll lead us to that blest home,
Wonderful love of Jesus! [Refrain]

3 Happy the meeting in Beulah Land,
Wonderful love of Jesus!
Joining our friends on the golden strand,
Wonderful love of Jesus! [Refrain]
