From the album Hiding Place

lyrics

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 what wondrous love is this
Though I raised my clenched fist
He opened up my hand to received His gift
And what wondrous love is here
The God Immortal has drawn near
And shed His blood to close the rift

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 and joyful be,
And through eternity
I’'ll sing on, I’'ll sing on,
And through eternity I'’ll sing on
