Text
What wondrous love is this, O my soul,
O my soul,
what wondrous love is this,
O my soul.
What wondrous love is this,
that caused the Lord of bliss
to bear the dreadful curse
for my soul, for my soul,
to bear the dreadful curse,
for my soul.

When I was sinking down, sinking down,
sinking down,
when I was sinking down,
sinking dow.
When I was sinking down
beneath God's righteous frown,
Christ laid aside his crown
for my soul, for my soul,
Christ laid aside his crown
for my soul.

To God and to the Lamb I will sing,
I will sing,
to God and to the Lamb
I will sing.
To God and to the Lamb
who is the great I AM,
while millions join the theme,
I will sing, I will sing.
While millions join the theme,
I will sing.

--Southern Harmony, 1835
