Representative Text

1 O the wonderful love of my Savior,
Reaching down unto me,
And His goodness still comes without measure
Like the waters that cover the sea.

Chorus:
O His love, reaches even me,
O His love, reaches even me;
It is joy divine to this soul of mine
That His love reaches even me.

2 O His mercy and love are about me,
Then what harm shall I fear?
For the evil may seek to allure me,
I shall know that my Savior is near. [Chorus]

3 O how precious to me is my Savior!
He can save even me,
And can keep by His power untiring;
O His love shall my guide ever be. [Chorus]

4 Wondrous love, bringing blessings unnumbered,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry hour,
I will ever adore and sing praises,
For I’m kept by His love and His pow’r. [Chorus]
