Great God Of Wonders, All Thy Ways



1 GREAT God of wonders, all Thy ways
Are righteous, matchless and divine;
But the blest triumphs of Thy grace
Most marvellous, unrivalled, shine;
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?

2 Crimes of such horror to forgive,
Such guilty, daring worms to spare;
This is Thy grand prerogative,
And none can in that honour share:
Pardon, O God, is only Thine;
Mercy and grace are all divine.

3 In wonder lost, with trembling joy,
We hail the pardon of our God,
Pardon for crimes of deepest dye,
A pardon traced in Jesus' blood.
To pardon thus is Thine alone;
Mercy and grace are both Thine own.

4 Soon shall this strange, this wondrous grace,
This perfect miracle of love,
Fill the wide earth, while sweeter praise
Sounds its own note in heaven above:
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich, so free?
