1 Oh! how wondrous is the story!
How the matchless Son of God
Left His home of heav’nly glory, and for us
He interposed His precious blood.

Refrain:
Glory, glory hallelujah,
To the Lamb once slain upon the tree,
Now He pleads before His Father’s throne above,
And intercedes for you and me.

2 Oh! what love is here abounding!
How it human love transcends!
Jesus dies to bring His enemies to God,
To reconcile and make us friends. [Refrain]

3 Who will slight His tender pleading?
Who resist such melting love?
Come accept His free and full salvation now,
And then we’ll reign with Him above. [Refrain]
