72 - My Savior's Love
 
1 I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean.
 
Refrein Oh, how marvelous! Oh, how wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
Oh, how marvelous! Oh, how wonderful!
Is my Saviorís love for me!
 
2 For me it was in the garden
He prayed: „Not My will, but Thine.”
He had no tears for His own griefs,
But sweat drops of blood for mine.
 
3 In pity angels beheld Him,
And came from the world of light
To comfort Him in the sorrows
He bore for my soul that night.
 
4 He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calv'ry,
And suffered and died alone.
 
5 When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see,
'Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me.
