One of my favorite hymns is, “What Wondrous Love Is This.” I also know this hymn as number 292 in The Methodist Hymnal. Not only does it give deep thoughts about our God’s love through Jesus Christ and His sacrifice, but it also gives me strong hope and faith in the last verse. I love the boldness of that line, “And when from death I am free, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing onWhen from death I’m free, I’ll sing and joyful be, and through eternity I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on.” What a strong testimony! The Sanctuary Choir will lift up a song based on this hymn during communion at the 11:00 AM service this Sunday. Also, there will be a guest musician, Zenas Kim, for an offertory at the service. She is a professional trombone player who studied in Europe and just came back to the States. At our 8:00 AM service, the Sonrise Singers will lift up a heartfelt song, “Surely the Presence of the Lord” during the offering time. I pray that we all feel God’s wondrous love this Lent, especially during our worship. May the Love of the Lord be with you all.
Here are the lyrics to, “What Wondrous Love Is This.” Let’s praise Him together!
- 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!
- When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down; when I was sinking down beneath God’s righteous frown, 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!
- 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!
