What Wondrous Love Is This

open hymnal in the sunshine

What wondrous love is this!
O my soul!
That caused the Lord of bliss
To send this precious peace
To my soul.

When I was sinking down,
Sinking down,
Beneath God’s righteous frown,
Christ laid aside His crown
For my soul.

Ye wingèd seraphs fly,
Bear the news:
Like comets through the sky,
Fill vast eternity
With the news.

Ye friends of Zion’s King,
Join the praise:
With hearts and voices sing,
And strike each tuneful string
In His praise.

To God, and to the Lamb,
I will sing,
Who is the great I AM,
While millions join the theme,
I will sing.

And when from death I’m free,
I’ll sing on;
I’ll sing and joyful be,
And through eternity,
I’ll sing on.

Note: The hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I make up a title or simply use the first line.
