1 There’s a wonderful theme in the gospel tongue,
As e’er was heard, as e’er was sung,
And thro’ the world the message rung,
“Christ Jesus died for sinners.”

Refrain:
Tell the message o’er again,
Jesus died for sinful men;
Sound the word, and make it plain;
“Christ Jesus died for sinners.”

2 ‘Tis a wonderful theme, and I oft have read
How Jesus bowed his weary heard;
“’Tis finished,” to the world he said:
“Christ Jesus died for sinners.” [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis a wonderful theme, that the Lord should give
His life, that I might life receive;
And now he bids me look and live:
“Christ Jesus died for sinners.” [Refrain]
