Elisha A. Hoffman (1839–1929)

Words & Mu­sic: Eli­sha A. Hoff­man, 1899 (🔊 pdf nwc).


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 par­don and save ev­en me!

Heart of mine ne­ver could know
Jesus such peace could be­stow,
Till the dear Sav­ior showed me His fav­or,
Cleansed my heart whit­er than snow.


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.


He doth my new heart con­trol,
Cleansing and keep­ing me whole,
Banishing sad­ness, with joy and glad­ness
Filling and thrill­ing my soul.
