1 O, condescension wonderful!
O boundless love, surpassing tho’t!
That Christ, the mighty Counsellor,
From heav’n to earth salvation brot’!

O, love divine! O, matchless grace!
O, mercy flowing full and free!
With wondrous love and winning voice,
We hear Him whisper, “Come to Me.”

2 O, joy to know that He is mine!
This wondrous Friend beyond compare!
O, joy above all human joy,
He will a place for me prepare! [Refrain]

3 O, peace that passeth human tho’t!
The peace of God so freely giv’n!
The world cannot this peace destroy,
This peace that fills the soul with heav’n! [Refrain]
