I Stand Amazed

 

1.       I stand amazed in the presence

Of Jesus the Nazarene,

And wonder how He could love me,

A sinner, condemned, unclean.

 

Chorus

How marvellous! How wonderful!

And my song shall ever be:

How marvellous! How wonderful!

Is my Saviourís love for me!

 

2.       For me it was in the garden

He prayed: ďNot My will, but Thine.Ē

He had no tears for His own griefs,

But sweat drops of blood for mine.

 

Chorus

How marvellous! How wonderful!

And my song shall ever be:

How marvellous! How wonderful!

Is my Saviourís love for me!

 

3.       In pity angels beheld Him,

And came from the world of light

To comfort Him in the sorrows

He bore for my soul that night.

 

Chorus

How marvellous! How wonderful!

And my song shall ever be:

How marvellous! How wonderful!

Is my Saviourís love for me!

 

4.       He took my sins and my sorrows,

He made them His very own;

He bore the burden to Calvíry,

And suffered and died alone.

 

Chorus

How marvellous! How wonderful!

And my song shall ever be:

How marvellous! How wonderful!

Is my Saviourís love for me!

 

5.       When with the ransomed in glory

His face I at last shall see,

íTwill be my joy through the ages

To sing of His love for me.
