1 Oh! how wondrous is the story!
How the matchless Son of God
Left His home of heav’nly glory, and for us
He interposed His precious blood.

Glory, glory hallelujah,
To the Lamb once slain upon the tree,
Now He pleads before His Father’s throne above,
And intercedes for you and me.

2 Oh! what love is here abounding!
How it human love transcends!
Jesus dies to bring His enemies to God,
To reconcile and make us friends. [Refrain]

3 Who will slight His tender pleading?
Who resist such melting love?
Come accept His free and full salvation now,
And then we’ll reign with Him above. [Refrain]
