1 Oh, wondrous love that Jesus shows,
To save from sin and all its woes,
And lead us up to heaven!
He died that we should never die;
He rose that we should dwell on high;
‘Twas all in mercy given.

Refrain:
Oh, wondrous is the Saviour’s love!
‘Tis pardon full and free;
Oh, blest salvation! wondrous love!
It reaches even me.

Dear Saviour, I will love thee more,
And labor on till life is o’er,
Proclaiming “wondrous love:”
I’ll tell to all thy saving grace,
And bid poor wand’rers seek thy face,
And enter heaven above. [Refrain]

2 Then hearken, sinner, come today,
Come thou to Jesus while you may,
For soon ‘twill be too late;
Come, all is ready,—pardon, peace,
Along life’s path sustaining grace,—
Come, enter heaven’s gate. [Refrain]

3 Come, brother,—sister,—full of sin,
His “wondrous love” will let you in,
And make you all his own;
Come, angels wait to bear away
The joyful news that you today
Are coming, coming home. [Refrain]
