” …I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”
– Galatians 2:20

I Stand Amazed in the Presence

Verse 1:
I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean.

Chorus:
How marvelous! How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be;
How marvelous! How wonderful!
Is my Savior’s love for me!

Verse 2:
For me it was in the garden
He prayed, “Not My will, but Thine.”
He had no tears for His own griefs,
But sweat drops of blood for mine.

Verse 3:
He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own.
He bore the burden to Calv’ry,
And suffered and died alone.

Verse 4:
When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see,
‘Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me.
