1 Wonderful, wonderful,
Jesus bore Calv’ry’s cross for me!
Said to the sinner, Go sin no more,
From your sins set free!
Over and over the song I sing
Of redeeming love,
Love of the Savior who rules as King,
In the realms above.

Refrain:
Wonderful, wonderful is the Savior’s love,
Wonderful, wonderful, sent from heav’n above,
Pleading love, pard’ning love, that with time began;
Seeking love, saving love,
God’s best gift to man.

2 Wonderful, wonderful,
Why should He, God’s beloved Son,
Care for a sinner, like you and me,
He the sinless One?
Over and over one song I sing
As thro’ life I go,
Ever the tho’t thro’ my soul will ring,
Jesus loved me so. [Refrain]

3 Wonderful, wonderful,
Sing with me, Jesus died for all!
He from the shackles of sin set free,
Those who heed His call.
Over and over the song I’ll sing
Till I see His face,
Then how the anthem of joy will ring,
Saved, O saved by grace. [Refrain]
