256. My Savior's Love

1 I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean.

Chorus:
How marvelous! how wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! how wonderful!
Is my Savior's love for me!

2 For me it was in the garden
He prayed, "Not My will, but Thine;"
He had no tears for His own griefs,
But sweatdrops of blood for mine. (Chorus)

3 He took my sins and my sorrow,
He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calv'ry,
And suffered and died alone. (Chorus)

4 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. (Chorus)
