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 Gods 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 Im free, 
Ill sing on, Ill sing on; 
And when from death Im free, Ill sing on. 
And when from death Im free, 
Ill sing and joyful be, 
And through eternity 
Ill sing on, Ill sing on, 
And through eternity Ill sing on.
