Scripture Verse

Praise the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:8


Elisha A. Hoffman

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.
