Full Text

1 O the great love the dear Savior has shown
To shamefully die on the tree,
Leaving his sceptre and beautiful throne
To rescue a sinner like me!

Refrain:
Oh, such wonderful love!
Oh, such wonderful love,
Jesus, my Savior, left sceptre and throne,
To rescue a sinner like me.

2 Palaces, mansions and inns had no room
For Christ, who so joyfully came
Down from yon heaven our path to illume,
And save us from sin and from shame. [Refrain]

3 Man of great sorrows and homeless was he,
But yet my Redeemer and Friend,
Pouring in infinite streams upon me,
A love that can nevermore end. [Refrain]
