1 Oh, this uttermost salvation!
'Tis a fountain full and free,
Pure, exhaustless, ever flowing,
Wondrous grace! it reaches me!

Chorus:
It reaches me! it reaches me!
Wondrous grace! it reaches me!
Pure, exhaustless, ever flowing,
Wondrous grace! it reaches me!

2 How amazing God's compassion,
That so vile a worm should prove
This stupendous bliss of Heaven,
This unmeasured wealth of love! [Chorus]

3 Jesus, Savior, I adore Thee!
Now Thy love I will proclaim,
I will tell the blessed story,
I will magnify Thy name! [Chorus]
