Representative Text

1 Love, wonderful love of God,
So boundless, so free;
To think that Christ His only Son
Should die on Calvary;
Oh love so great, so vast, so high,
That He should for the sinner die.

Love, wonderful love,
The love of Christ to me,
Love, wonderful love,
So rich, so full, so free;
Wide, wide as the ocean,
Deep, deep as the sea,
High, high as the heav’ns above,
His love to me.

2 Love, wonderful love of God,
To me has been made known;
To me the Spirit freely gives
And claims me for His Own;
O love so wondrous, so divine,
That I am His and He is mine. [Chorus]

3 Love, wonderful love of God,
With joy I now proclaim
To sinners lost that they may have
Salvation thro' His name;
That they may now with others prove,
Christ's dying and undying love. [Chorus]
