Wonderful Beyond All Telling


Wonderful beyond all telling
Is the love the Father bears,
Every human love excelling,
T’ward the creatures of His care.
Have I heard aright the story,
Of the precious gift He gave?
How He sent His Son from glory,
Our poor dying souls to save?

Refrain:
Children of the King are we,
Royalty possessing,
Bonds are broken, we are free,
With His choicest blessing.

All the years since the creation
Have been guided by His love;
Every tribe and every nation
Owes its strength to God above;
But the love which gave us Jesus
Was the crowning love divine;
Gilds our work with a new glory,
Makes the Christian life to shine. [Refrain]

Thoughts of mercy had He for us,
Ere we drew our earthly breath;
Mercy still will be about us,
When we close our eyes in death;
Let us give Him, then, forever,
Praise from young hearts all aglow,
Love our God, and love each other,
For He loved us first, you know. [Refrain]
