I stand amazed in the presence

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!
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 strengthen 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 Calv’ry,
  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.

The Holy Spirit woke me up this night with this song and I sought for it. It's interesting to me tonight to see that it's not with anything I could add to His love that both save me; not even my prayer. Same also to His choice of using me to accomplish His eternal purpose. It is a humbling experience. Thank you Lord:😪😭😭

I always sing this hymn meditatively in tears. All I desire is to see this Loving Master on the Last Day and celebrate with him in the Kingdom of God. Help me Jesus.

Precious love! Jesus says, "Come," and when we draw near to Him, He draws near to us! He keeps His Word! He invites us to Himself to abide in His Word for eternity - beginning right now!!! All praise be to King Jesus!!! I love you, Lord Jesus! How beautiful it is to be here in praise with fellow believers! The Lord bless you all! <3

Beautiful song tells of the love of Jesus for us and now we will sing of that love. It is amazing how salvation plan has made me to understand had not for Christ's death I would be still lost. Thank God how wonderful is His love for me..
