From the recording Vocal Music--Hymn Arrangements
A most personal and heartfelt sentiment, as the despair we feel as we contemplate our state turns to joy and humble and gratitude as we realize His Atonement, even Jesus Christ, was for us. It is wonderful, that He would care for me enough to die for me.
You can purchase the sheet music here at Sheet Music Plus, thus helping us to increase the power and reach of this music, and by downloading it for free here from FreeLDSSheetMusi.com.
This arrangement is also available here for solo piano (for which there are 2 sheet music versions available in different keys). I hope you can feel His love also.
I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,
Confused at the grace that so fully he proffers me.
I tremble to know that for me he was crucified,
That for me, a sinner, he suffered, he bled and died.
Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me
Enough to die for me!
Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!
I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine
To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine,
That he should extend his great love unto such as I,
Sufficient to own, to redeem, and to justify.
I think of his hands pierced and bleeding to pay the debt!
Such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?
No, no, I will praise and adore at the mercy seat,
Until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet.
