C. H. Gabriel

I STAND all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,

Confused at the grace that so fully He proffers me;

I tremble to know that for me He was crucified—

That for me, a sinner, He suffered, He bled, and died.

Oh, it is wonderful that He should care for me,

Enough to die for me!

Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!


I marvel that He would descend from His throne divine,

To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine;

That He should extend His great love unto such as I;

Sufficient to own, to redeem, and to justify.


I think of His hands pierced and bleeding to pay that debt!

Such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?

No, no! I will praise and adore at the mercy-seat,

Until at the glorified throne I kneel at His feet.
