I Stand Amazed


[Verse 1]


I stand amazed in the presence

   D             G

Of Jesus the Nazarene,

    C                   G

And wonder how He could love me,

             D         G

A sinner, condemned, unclean.





How marvellous! How wonderful!


And my song shall ever be:

G               D

How marvellous! How wonderful!

Am    Em        C    D   G

Is my Saviour’s love for me!



[Verse 2]


For me it was in the garden

   D                         G

He prayed: “Not My will, but Your’s.”

   C                    G

He had no tears for His own griefs,

                   D         G

But sweat drops of blood for mine.



[Verse 3]


In pity angels beheld Him,

    D                      G

And came from the world of light

   C                  G

To comfort Him in the sorrows

               D         G

He bore for my soul that night.



[Verse 4]


He took my sins and my sorrows,

   D                  G

He made them His very own;

   C                  G

He bore the burden to Calv’ry,

                 D    G

And suffered and died alone.



[Verse 5]


When with the ransomed in glory

    D                    G

His face I at last shall see,

       C                     G

’Twill be my joy through the ages.

               D        G

To sing of His love for me.
