Great God of Wonders!

Great God wonders!  All thy ways
Are worthy of thyself divine;
And the bright glories of thy grace
Among thine other wonders shine;

Pardon from an offended God!
Pardon for sins of deepest dye!
Pardon bestowed through Jesus’ blood!
Pardon that brings the rebel nigh!

O may this glorious matchless love,
This God-like miracle of grace,
Teach mortal tongues, like those above,
To raise this song of lofty praise:

Who is a pard’ning God like thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?
Who is a pard’ning God like thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?

  1. But we would substitute sound theology for repetitious praise choruses that do not say anything.

    There’s no God like Jehovah…there’s no God like Jehovah…there’s no God like Jehovah…there’s no God like Jehovah…ad infinitum, ad nauseum, etc. and so on…

  2. jel,
    Thanks! I wish I had written it. 😉

    Tony,
    The current theological dearth of contemporary music is frightening. Too many Christians (at least in my experience) get more of their doctrine from the hymnal than the Bible. That fact alone makes the shallow lyrics of today dangerous.
