Lyrics

God gave His Son for me,
O wondrous love!
From sin to set me free,
O wondrous love!
A guilty rebel I,
Bound and condemned to die,
He did not pass me by,
O wondrous love!
A guilty rebel I,
Bound and condemned to die,
He did not pass me by,
O wondrous love!

There, there at God’s right hand,
O wondrous love!
I see my Savior stand,
O wondrous love!
He makes my nature pure,
In Him I am secure;
Whatever I endure;
O wondrous love!
He makes my nature pure,
In Him I am secure;
Whatever I endure;
O wondrous love!

He’ll give me needful grace,
O wondrous love!
Soon I shall see His face,
O wondrous love!
Join those who’ve gone before,
Sorrow and pain all o’er,
Heav’n, Heaven, forevermore!
O wondrous love!
Join those who’ve gone before,
Sorrow and pain all o’er,
Heav’n, Heaven, forevermore!
O wondrous love!
