Great God of Wonders

1. Great God of wonders!
All Thy ways Are matchless,
Godlike and divine;
But the fair glories of Thy grace
More Godlike and unrivalled shine.

Refrain: Who's a pardoning God like Thee?
Who has grace so rich and free?
Who's a pardoning God like Thee?
Great God of Wonders

2. Crimes of such horror to forgive
Such guilty, daring worms to spare
This is Thine grand prerogative
And none shall in the honor share!

3. In wonder lost, in trembling joy,
We take the pardon of our God:
Pardon for crimes of deepest dye,
A pardon bought with Jesus' blood.

4. O may this strange,
this matchless grace,
This Godlike miracle of love,
Fill the wide earth with grateful praise,
And all the angelic chorus above.

--Samuel Davies, 1723-1761
