1 Sing we of the grace of God,
Of the wonders of His love;
Tell His glories all abroad,
And of His wonderful love!

Wonderful love of God!
Wonderful love of God!
How it redeemeth, and how it reclaimeth
The souls He hath bo’t with blood.

2 Love that bro’t salvation near,
Thro’ God’s well-beloved Son.
And believing we shall wear
Yonder a beautiful crown! [Refrain]

3 Love of God so full and free,
Love of God so strong to save,
Blood that cleanseth even me,
Wonderful, wonderful love! [Refrain]

4 Love that holds the worlds in space,
Love that lighteth all within.
Love that keeps us by His grace,
Wonderful, wonderful love! [Refrain]
