I stand amazed in the presence
of Jesus the Nazarene,
and wonder how he could love me,
a sinner, condemned, unclean.

How marvellous!  How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvellous!  How wonderful!
Is my Saviour’s love for me!


For me he prayed in the garden
and bowed to the will divine;
he had no tears for his own griefs,
but sweat drops of blood for mine.


He took my sins and my sorrows,
he made them his very own;
he bore the burden to Calvary,
and suffered and died alone.


When with the ransomed in glory
his face I at last shall see,
’twill be my joy through the ages
to sing of his love for me.
