Anthem 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.

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 life
to lay aside his crown
for my soul, for my soul,
to lay 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.

And when from death I'm free,
I'll sing on, I'll sing on,
and when from death I'm free, I'll sing on;
and when from death I'm free,
I'll sing and joyful be,
and through eternity
I'll sing on, I'll sing on,
and through eternity, I'll sing on.

Text: American folk hymn

Reviews
"Also for two-voice parts, along with piano and three octave handbell accompaniment, is Steve Pilkington's 'Wondrous Love' (Selah 405-463). The handbells add effectively to the piece with chord clusters and random ringing at the end. The voice parts are simple, with writing in unison, canon, and with descant. The handbell part is printed separately on the back page of the choral score." -The Hymn, July 1999

Description
A very attractive and highly practical setting of the early American folk hymn, singable by choirs of any age and size. The handbell part (11 bells) is simple and effective, and includes some random ringing. The piece closes with a two-part canon on the melody.
