How wonderful redemption is

How wonderful redemption is,
  My gracious Lord, in Thee!
Not seen, nor heard, nor e'er conceived
  What Thou hast done for me!
Thou art divine, mysterious,
  Beyond my grandest phrase!
Redemption is so marvellous,
  Beyond all pow'r to praise!
For us Thou on the Cross wast pierced,
  And blood and water streamed;
That life divine be giv'n to us,
  That we may be redeemed.
Thy precious blood has made us clean,
  That we accepted be;
Regenerated by Thy life,
  We now are one with Thee.
Thou art the grain divine that died
  The many grains to bear,
Which, blent and formed, Thy Body are.
  And all Thy nature share.
We are the increase of Thyself,
  And Thou our content art;
Through us Thou livest and dost move
  And manifested art.
Since we're Thy Body, Thou may come
  And settle down in us;
In us Thou may obtain Thy home
  And we become Thy trust.
Thy heart to satisfy and please,
  We are Thy counterpart,
Now in one Body with Thyself,
  Enjoying all Thou art.
While in remembrance now we meet
  And here the symbols see,
For Thy redemption great and full
  We're filled with praise to Thee.
Since we are made Thy Body, Lord,
  Thy dwelling place and bride,
We would give thanks and worship Thee
  And in Thy praise abide.

Since we’re Thy Body, Thou may come and settle down in us; in us Thou may obtain Thy home. And we become Thy trust.

Amen and how wonderful redemption is!

We found a chorus in an online hymnal that was:

How wondrous redemption is,

New creation glorious.

Effective through eternal ‘tis

All worthy of our praise.

Prior to finding this, a local sister translated this for us, and we got into the habit of singing this way:

Oh, how wond’rous redemption is,

New creation, how glorious!

Full, complete and effective,

Ever worthy of our praise!

You can try singing both, to find which you prefer singing.
