Wonder of Wonders

Mark Webb

Verse 1
Oh the wonder of wonders that God should love me
A sinner so guilty, so vile and unclean
To love the unlovely, how can it be done?
‘Tis only in Jesus, in His Blessed Son.

Verse 2
Long before I ever knew Him, my Lord first knew me.
Before I ever sought Him, my Lord first sought me.
When I was in darkness, His sworn enemy
He purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree.

Chorus
His love is a mountain that I cannot scale,
As wide as an ocean that I cannot sail,
I’ll never lay hold of, my mind fully see
This love that in mercy first laid hold of me

Verse 3
Not that I first did choose Him, for that could not be
Still this heart would refuse Him had He left it to me
I’d still fight the battle that no man can win
I’d still bar the heart’s door that letteth Him in.

Chorus
His love is a mountain that I cannot scale,
As wide as an ocean that I cannot sail,
I’ll never lay hold of, my mind fully see
This love that in mercy first laid hold of me
