I stand amazed in the presence

1
I stand amazed in the presence
  Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
  A sinner condemned, unclean.
  How marvelous! How wonderful!
  And my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! How wonderful!
    Is my Savior’s love for me!
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.
3
In pity angels beheld Him,
  And came from the world of light
To strengthen Him in the sorrows
  He bore for my soul that night.
4
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.
5
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.

In the early 1900's Charles H. Gabriel was the king of gospel music. Gabriel wrote the words and music for a number of hymns used by popular evangelists of his day such as Billy Sunday and his song-leader, Homer Rodeheaver.

Gabriel's hymns reflect a change in the style of gospel music. In the 1800's, hymns were deeply meaningful and often meditative. But with the revivals of Moody and Sunday, Christians learned to love songs that were fun to sing, highly energetic, and easy to remember. - Great Songs of Faith by Brown & Norton

So simple yet so profound. I can't get this song out of my head. And I hope I never do!

Truly the love of Jesus is so boundless and deep. Indeed we cannot fathom His love for us. I would love to ask Him why He loved us so much when I see my Lord in glory. Thank You Lord Jesus!

The song is about the marvellous love of my Saviour. How He could love me so wretched, unclean and condemned for hell fire. His love shall be my song for ever.

2 Corinthians 8:9

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich.

--How wonderful, how marvelous!
