Is It Not Wonderful?

by Elisha A. Hoffman


Wondrous it seemeth to me
Jesus so gracious should be,
Mercy revealing, comforting, healing,
Blessing a sinner like me.

Heart of mine never could know
Jesus such peace could bestow,
Till the dear Savior
showed me His favor,
Cleansed my heart whiter than snow.

Once I was full of all sin,
Now thro’ the blood I am clean;
Willing to save me,
pardon He gave me,
And I am happy within.

Long I resisted his grace,
In my heart gave him no place;
But Jesus sought me,
Till he had bro't me,
Penitent seeking his face,

He doth my new heart control,
Cleansing and keeping me whole,
Banishing sadness,
with joy and gladness
Filling and thrilling my soul.

Chorus

Is it not wonderful, is it not wonderful
Jesus so gracious should be?
Yes, it is wonderful,
Strange and so wonderful
That He should pardon
And save even me!
