O the wonderful love of Jesus,
It fills my heart with joy;
O the wonderful love of Jesus
Gives peace naught can destroy;
’Tis manna to my spirit,
’Tis honey to my soul;
O the wonderful love of Jesus
Brings happiness untold;
O the wonderful love of Jesus
Brings happiness untold.

O the wonderful love of Jesus,
It cures the sin-sick soul;
O the wonderful love of Jesus
Can make the body whole;
It comforts every sorrow,
It takes away all care;
O the wonderful love of Jesus
Brings bliss beyond compare;
O the wonderful love of Jesus
Brings bliss beyond compare.

O the wonderful love of Jesus,
We’ll tell it o’er and o’er;
O the wonderful love of Jesus,
We’ll sing from shore to shore.
O take this love of Jesus,
Your heart let Him control;
Shout the wonderful love of Jesus
While endless ages roll;
Shout the wonderful love of Jesus
While endless ages roll.
