Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
O ítis a glorious mystery
íTis a wonder!
That I should ever saved be,
íTis a wonder!
No heart can think, no tongue can tell,
íTis a wonder!
The love of God unspeakable,
íTis a wonder!

Great mystery that God should place,
íTis a wonder!
His love on any of Adamís race,
íTis a wonder!
That I should also share a part,
íTis a wonder!
And find a mansion in His heart,
íTis a wonder!
