What Wondrous Love is This?


What Wondrous Love Is This?

Author:  Anonymous
"What Wondrous Love is This" is a  Christians folk hymn, sometimes described as a  "white spiritual" , from the American South.  Its text was first published in 1811, during the Second Great Awaking,  and its melody derived from a popular English ballad. Today it is a widely known hymn included in hymnals of many Christian denominations.” –Wikipedia

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 bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul!

When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down
When I was sinking down, sinking down
When I was sinking down, beneath God's righteous frown
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul for my soul
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul

To God and to the Lamb I will sing, I will sing
To God and to the Lamb I will sing
To God and to the Lamb, Who is the great I AM
While millions join the theme, I will sing, I will sing
While millions join the theme, I will sing

And when from death I'm free, I'll sing on, I'll sing on
And when from death I'm free, I'll sing on
And when from death I'm free… I'll sing His love for me
And through eternity I'll sing on, I'll sing on
And through eternity I'll sing on
