I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me

1
I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,
Confused at the grace that so fully He proffers me;
I tremble to know that for me He was crucified,
That for me, a sinner, He suffered, He bled and died.
  O it is wonderful that He should care for me
  Enough to die for me!
  O it is wonderful, wonderful to me!
2
I marvel that He would descend from His throne divine
To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine;
That He should extend His great love unto such as I,
Sufficient to own, to redeem, and to justify.
3
I think of His side, pierced and bleeding to pay the debt,
Such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?
No, no! I will praise and adore at the mercy seat,
And testify all my desires He doth fully meet.

Verse three should read, "I think of His hands pierced and bleeding"....

"And testify all my desires He doth fully meet... is actually written as "Until at the glorified throne I kneel at His feet." Who is rewriting this song?

I listen to these words and picture everything in my mind. It reminds me that this song is true in every aspect and it puts feelings into words that cannot be explained. This song is one of the most beautiful, touching songs I have ever heard and the feeling it gives the listener (me) is indescribably magnificent.

This is beautiful. I love reading or listening to anything that reminds me that God's love for me is real. It's like precious healing balm to my heart. God is so good to inspire people to write songs like this which express so clearly the greatness of God's love and sacrifice for us.

I really like what Gary had to say about taking time to ponder and meditate on God's love and sacrifice. This is something I definitely want to do more often.

Blessings!

This song changed my life... I was a very young woman, lost and confused and needing someone to love me for who I was... then I hear this song and it all made sense to me... I thank my heavenly Father for the wonderful missionaire that came into my life and introduce me to my eternal home... my eternal life.

As I ponder these old hymns (also John Newton's Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder) I see a pattern of amazement as the authors behold the love of Christ displayed in His suffering on the cross. I sense that this awe plays an important role in experiencing His presence in our lives. In I John 3, John is so amazed at the fact that we are called "children of God", that he breaks into praise emoting, "Behold what manner of love...". May God help us to give the time to ponder and meditate on the depths of His suffering and love for us.

We sung this song before the blessing of the sacrament today. I cried for the first time singing at Sacrament meeting because the words of this song had spoken to me about the love of Jesus for us. It is so real and unconditional.

Church is a hospital for sick souls not a museum for sinless ones. Dont let pride and sin be the reason you don't go to church...let it be the very reason why you must go. God bless you.

Sheila, I never comment on any website, but I felt like I should here. I do so because I just want you to know that i'll pray for you. When you feel hopeless say to yourself that those feelings are not coming from the Lord. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is ALWAYS the gospel of HOPE...

True messages from the Lord always help us to feel hope.
