Wondrous Words How Rich In Blessing


Wondrous words! how rich in blessing!
Deeper than th’unfathomed sea;
Broader than its world of waters,
Boundless, infinite and free;
Higher than the heavens above,
Is that everlasting love;
Higher than the heavens above,
Is that everlasting love.

Down to lowest depths it reaches-
The all-loving Father’s arm,
T’ward his rebel children yearning,
Drawing them with magic charm;
Till the yielding spirits move,
Touched by everlasting love;
Till the yielding spirits move,
Touched by everlasting love.

Weary spirits-sad with toiling,
‘Mid the sorrows of life’s way-
Feel their heavy burdens lightened,
As they journey day by day.
How with quickened steps they move,
Cheered by everlasting love;
How with quickened steps they move,
Cheered by everlasting love.

I have set thee as a signet,
Graven on my hands thy name;
Lo, I still am with thee always,
Evermore thy Friend-the same;
Never changing-thou wilt prove
Mind is everlasting love;
Never changing-thou wilt prove
Mind is everlasting love.

In my house of many mansions
I’ve prepared a place for thee,
Where are no dark clouds or tempests
Where I am, there thou shalt be-
All the untold bliss to prove,
Of my everlasting love;
All the untold bliss to prove,
Of my everlasting love.
