I stand amazed in the presence

I stand amazed in the presence
of Jesus the Nazarene
and wonder how he could love me,
a sinner condemned, unclean!

How marvellous! how wonderful!
this my song shall ever be:
how marvellous! how wonderful
is my Saviour’s love for me!

2. For me he prayed in the garden
and bowed to the will divine;
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 Calvary
and suffered and died alone.

5. When with the ransomed in glory
his face I at last shall see,
my joy will be through the ages
to sing of his love for me.
