Wonderful Grace of Jesus

Haldor Lillenas, 1885-1959

Verse 1
Wonderful grace of Jesus,
Greater than all my sin;
How shall my tongue describe it,
Where shall its praise begin?
Taking away my burden,
Setting my spirit free;
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Chorus
[Men]                                      [Ladies]
Wonderful the
Matchless grace                  The matchless
Of Jesus                              Grace of Jesus
Deeper than the
Mighty rolling sea                The rolling sea
Higher than the                          Wonderful
Mountain, sparkling                         Grace
Like a fountain                         All sufficient
All sufficient grace                           For me
For even me                             For even me

[ALL Together]
Broader than the scope of my transgressions
Greater far than all my sin and shame; my sin and shame;
O magnify the precious Name of Jesus.
Praise His Name!

Verse 2
Wonderful grace of Jesus,
Reaching to all the lost,
By it I have been pardoned,
Saved to the uttermost,
Chains have been torn asunder,
Giving me liberty;
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Chorus
[Men]                                      [Ladies]
Wonderful the
Matchless grace                  The matchless
Of Jesus                              Grace of Jesus
Deeper than the
Mighty rolling sea                The rolling sea
Higher than the                          Wonderful
Mountain, sparkling                         Grace
Like a fountain                         All sufficient
All sufficient grace                           For me
For even me                             For even me

[ALL Together]
Broader than the scope of my transgressions
Greater far than all my sin and shame; my sin and shame;
O magnify the precious Name of Jesus.
Praise His Name!

Verse 3
Wonderful grace of Jesus,
Reaching the most defiled,
By its transforming power,
Making him God’s dear child,
Purchasing peace and Heaven,
For all eternity;
And the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.

Chorus
[Men]                                      [Ladies]
Wonderful the
Matchless grace                  The matchless
Of Jesus                              Grace of Jesus
Deeper than the
Mighty rolling sea                The rolling sea
Higher than the                          Wonderful
Mountain, sparkling                         Grace
Like a fountain                         All sufficient
All sufficient grace                           For me
For even me                             For even me

[ALL Together]
Broader than the scope of my transgressions
Greater far than all my sin and shame; my sin and shame;
O magnify the precious Name of Jesus.
Praise His Name!
