Welcome to the HistoricHymns.com Hymn Details Page!
|1||It is a thing most wonderful,
Almost too wonderful to be,
That God’s own Son should come from Heaven,
And die to save a child like me.
|2||And yet I know that it is true;
He came to this poor world below,
And wept and toiled, and mourned and died,
Only because He loved us so.
|3||I cannot tell how He could love
A child so weak and full of sin;
His love must be most wonderful,
If He could die my love to win.
|4||I sometimes think about the Cross,
And shut my eyes and try to see
The cruel nails and crown of thorns,
And Jesus crucified for me.
|5||But even could I see Him die,
I could but see a little part
Of that great love which, like a fire,
Is always burning in His Heart.
|6||It is most wonderful to know
His love for me so free and sure;
But ’tis more wonderful to see
My love for Him so faint and poor.
|7||And yet I want to love Thee, Lord!
O light the flame within my heart!
And I will love Thee more and more,
Until I see Thee as Thou art. Amen.
|2 Samuel||1:26||I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.
|Luke||24:41||And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
|John||4:10||Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
|1 John||4:10||Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
