1 What the Lord has done for me,
He will surely do for you!
Come to Him your sins confessing,
Come believing in His word,
Come, accept the blessed Lord,
Come without delay and claim the promised blessing.

Refrain:
‘Tis wonderful, it is wonderful,
Such love, redeeming love, such favor!
It is wonderful, it is truly, truly wonderful,
So wonderful to know such a Savior.

2 What the Lord has done for me,
He will surely do for you,
If you only learn to love Him;
If you trust Hi day by day,
And His gracious will obey,
You will find there’s not another friend above Him. [Refrain]

3 What the Lord has done for me,
He will surely do for you—
Simply trust Him now—believe Hi;
For He loves you, O so well,
More than mortal tongue can tell;
Will you harden now your heart and not receive Him. [Refrain]

4 What the Lord has done for me,
He will surely do for you,
To His name be praise and glory!
Of the precious life He gave,
Of His mighty pow’r to save,
O I love to tell abroad the dear old story! [Refrain]
