Representative Text

1 Wonderful, infinite, matchless love,
As broad as the boundless sea;
Jesus came down from His throne above,
Stooping to save a poor sinner like me.

Refrain:
Stooping to save a poor sinner like me,
Stooping to save a poor sinner like me;
Wonderful, marvelous, how can it be?
Stooping to save a poor sinner like me.

2 Changing His vesture as white as snow,
For one of humility,
Jesus came down to this world of woe,
Stooping to save a poor sinner like me. [Refrain]

3 Born in a manger to grief and pain
And dying upon the tree,
Shamefully treated and for me slain,
Stooping to save a poor sinner like me. [Refrain]

4 Then let me look on His blessed face,
Thro’out all Eternity,
Ever adoring Him for His grace,
Stooping to save a poor sinner like me. [Refrain]
