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

Refrain:
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]
