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 was listening to this song done by Steph Macleod and in the second stanza, because of his Scottish accent, I thought I heard "I shed no tears for him, but He sweat drops of blood for me." So I came to this site and discovered it is actually "He had no tears for His own griefs,

But sweat-drops of blood for mine.".

Which is a great line by Chris Tomlin; but I sit here with tears about such a thing and the love He loved us with despite my wretchedness, about the idea of what I thought I heard.

"3 He was despised and forsaken of men,

A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;

And like one from whom men hide their face

He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

4 Surely our griefs He Himself bore,

And our sorrows He carried;

Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,

Smitten of God, and afflicted." Isaiah 53:3-4

This song confronts me always with the immeasurable love of God. And especially now in this great moment of trauma, I’m reminded that God’s love for us is marvelous and wonderful. Above all, I’m assured again of a here-after in glory with Him. Hallelujah!!!
