How can I grasp this awesome love
That stooped to wash one stained with sin
That won a rebel heart like mine
And died to bring me peace with him?
What grace that fixed that love on me
Selfless yet so undeserved
A love which paid my debt with pain
That death eternal life secured
While others stood outside the light –
Immanuel’s rejection –
He granted me, a son of God
The hope of resurrection.
I cannot tell the debt I owe,
A sum beyond all counting.
His grace has planted faith in me
And cast out all my doubting
This awesome love has won my heart.
How could I love another?
When all I have is found in him,
In Christ and in no other
O may I serve this awesome love
A heart forever grateful
My king, my life, my all in all
May I be ever faithful.
