1 O wonderful words of the gospel!
O wonderful message they bring,
Proclaiming a blessed redemption
Thro’ Jesus our Saviour and king.
Believe, oh, believe in His mercy
That flows like a fountain so free;
Believe, and receive the redemption
He offers to you and to me.
2 He came from the throne of His glory,
And left the bright mansions above,
The world to redeem from its bondage;
So great His compassion and love. [Refrain]
3 O come to this wonderful Saviour,
Come weary and sorrow-oppressed;
Behold on the cross how He suffered,
That you in His kingdom might rest. [Refrain]
4 There’s no other refuge but Jesus,
No shelter where lost ones may fly;
And now, while He’s tenderly calling:
O “turn ye,” “for why will ye die?” [Refrain]
