1. Wonderful grace of Jesus
Greater than all my sin
How shall my tongue describe it?
Where shall its praise begin?
Taking away my burden, setting my spirit free
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me

(Chorus)
Wonderful the matchless grace of Jesus
(The matchless grace of Jesus)
Deeper than the mighty rolling sea (the rolling sea)
Higher than the mountain (wonderful grace)
Sparkling like a fountain (all sufficient for me)
All sufficient grace for even me (for even me)
Broader than the scope of my transgressions (sing it)
Greater far than all my sin and shame (my sin and shame)
O magnify the precious name of Jesus
Praise His name!

[2. Wonderful grace of Jesus
Reaching to all the lost
By it I have been pardoned
Saved to the uttermost
Chains have been torn asunder, giving me liberty
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.]

3. Wonderful grace of Jesus
Reaching the most defiled
By its transforming power
Making him God’s dear child
Purchasing peace and Heaven for all eternity
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me

Repeat Chorus
