1 Oh, what a lesson we all may learn,
Wonderful love of Christ!
Gladly our minds to its message turn,
Wonderful love of Christ!

Truer knowledge ne’er can be;
Deeper truth they ne’er shall see;
Lesson for eternity,
Wonderful love of Christ!

2 Fullness of blessing, of peace, and joy,
Wonderful love of Christ!
Sounding its depths shall our life employ,
Wonderful love of Christ! [Chorus]

3 Into this truth, let the children in,
Wonderful love of Christ!
Knowledge divine would we ever win,
Wonderful love of Christ! [Chorus]
