    I Stand All Amazed

    Thoughtfully

    1. I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,

    Confused at the grace that so fully he proffers me.

    I tremble to know that for me he was crucified,

    That for me, a sinner, he suffered, he bled and died.

    [Chorus]

    Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me

    Enough to die for me!

    Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!

    2. I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine

    To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine,

    That he should extend his great love unto such as I,

    Sufficient to own, to redeem, and to justify.

    [Chorus]

    Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me

    Enough to die for me!

    Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!

    3. I think of his hands pierced and bleeding to pay the debt!

    Such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?

    No, no, I will praise and adore at the mercy seat,

    Until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet.

    [Chorus]

    Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me

    Enough to die for me!

    Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!
