Lord’s Day Hymn – “O how marvelous! O how wonderful!”

“I Stand Amazed in the Presence”
By Charles H. Gabriel (1905)

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

O how marvelous! O how wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
O how marvelous! O how wonderful!
Is my Savior’s love for me!

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.

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.

He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calvary,
And suffered and died alone.

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.

  1. Thank your for your most useful website. I just wonder why you have an occult link (the duck/rabbit test) on it? It seems out of place and a contradiction to the rest of the site.

    • Hi Peter,

      I’m truly sorry about the occult link. Because this free blog is hosted by WordPress they often put advertisements on it that I have no control over. I’ll look into having the ads removed.
