1 Wondrous it seemeth to me,
Jesus so gracious should be,
Mercy revealing, comforting, healing,
Blessing a sinner like me.

Is it not wonderful,
is it not wonderful
Jesus so gracious should be?
Yes, it is wonderful
strange and so wonderful!
That He should save even me!

2 Heart of mine never could know
Jesus such peace could bestow,
Till the dear Savior show'd me His favor,
Cleans'd my heart whiter than snow. [Chorus]

3 Once I was full of all sin,
Now, thro' the blood, I am clean;
Willing to save me, pardon He gave me,
And I am happy within. [Chorus]

4 Long I resisted His grace,
In my heart gave Him no place;
But Jesus sought me till He had bro't me,
Penitent, seeking His face. [Chorus]
