Full Text

1 That God should love a sinner such as I,
Should yearn to change my sorrow into bliss,
Nor rest till He had planned to bring me nigh,
How wonderful is love like this!

Refrain:
Such love, such wondrous love,
Such love, such wondrous love,
That God should love a sinner such as I,
How wonderful is love like this!

2 That Christ should join so freely in the scheme,
Although it meant His death on Calvary,
Did ever human tongue find nobler theme
Than love divine that ransomed me? [Refrain]

3 That for a wilful outcast such as I,
The Father planned, the Savior bled and died;
Redemption for a worthless slave to buy,
Who long had law and grace defied. [Refrain]

4 And now He takes me to His heart—a son,
He asks me not to fill a servant’s place;
The “Far-off country” wand’rings all are done,
Wide open are His arms of grace. [Refrain]
