Wondrous Love

What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul?
When I was sinking down beneath God’s righteous frown,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul.
To God and to the Lamb Who is the great “I Am”
While millions join the theme I will sing.
And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing and joyful be,
And through eternity I’ll sing on.
-- Wondrous Love, an American folk hymn

No storm can shake my inmost calm
While to that refuge clinging;
Since Christ is Lord of Heav’n and earth,
How can I keep from singing?
-- From
How Can I Keep from Singing? by Robert Lowry
