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.

I woke up this morning with this hymn on my mind and tongue. As many others have testified here, I hadn’t thought of this song for years. I am nearly 70 years old and received a liver transplant almost two years ago. I am now healthy, but I feel that God recalls these old hymns to us to prepare us to be with Jesus and “to sing of his love for me. ”

Just had to say something from Australia. I found myself singing this old hymn I haven't sung since a child. It now has tremendous meaning. How great is God's love for us. My heart is overflowing with love and joy to our wonderful Saviour.

I love the words of this song and the tune is just consoling. It strengthens my soul. Its good we still have inspirational hymns. I feel at church while listening to hymns especially during this lock.

These precious hymns I grew up with are proving to be great sources of strength, along with God's Word, during these uncertain days. Many mornings I will wake up with a hymn on my mind that I haven't heard in years, and I'm refreshed and renewed!

I love this song, especially during the holy week as we remember the journey Jesus took to face the cruel cross on our behalf.
