1. Jesus came down my ransom to be;
O it was wonderful love!
For out of the Father’s heart He came,
To die me for me on a cross of shame,
And from sin’s bondage to reclaim;
O it was wonderful love!

Refrain
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful love,
Coming to me from Heaven above,
Filling me, thrilling me through and through;
O it was wonderful love!

2. Clear to faith’s vision the cross reveals
Beautiful actions of love;
And all that by grace e’en I may be
When saved, to serve Him eternally.
He came, He died, for you and me;
O it was wonderful love! [Refrain]

3. His death’s a claim, His love has a plea;
O it is wonderful love!
Ungrateful was I to slight Thy call,
But, Lord, now I come, before Thee fall,
I give myself, I give up all,
All for Thy wonderful love. [Refrain]
