Atonement, New Creation, Sin, The Love of God, The Sacrifice of Christ



Verse 1
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

Verse 2
For me it was in the garden
He prayed, “Not my will, but thine.”
He had no tears for his own griefs
But sweat drops of blood for mine

Verse 3
In pity angels beheld him
And came from the world of light
To comfort him in the sorrows
He bore for my soul that night

Verse 4
He took my sins and my sorrows
He made them his very own
He bore the burden to Calvary
And suffered and died alone

Verse 5
When with the ransomed in glory
His face I, at last, shall see
‘Twill be my joy though the ages
To sing of his love for me
