What wondrous love is this? O my soul! O my soul!
What wondrous love is this? O my soul!
What wondrous love is this,
That caused the Lord of bliss,
To send this precious peace to my soul, to my soul?
To send this precious peace to my soul!

When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down;
When I was sinking down, sinking down;
When I was sinking down,
Beneath Godís righteous frown,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul, for my soul,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul.

Ye friends of Zionís King, join the praise, join the praise;
Ye friends of Zionís King, join the praise;
Ye friends of Zionís King,
With heart and voices sing,
And strike each tuneful string in his praise, in his praise,
And strike each tuneful string in his praise.
