A great Hymn with priceless meaning, song down through the years of time. A reflection on faith of people, now most likely citizens of Glory. A reflection of how much the God that created us loves us.
It Is A thing Most Wonderful.
V1: It is a thing most wonderful,
Almost too wonderful to be;
That God’s own Son should come from heaven.
and die to save a child like me.
V2: And yet I know that it is true;
He chose a poor and humble lot,
And wept and toiled, and mourned, and died,
For love of those who loved Him not.
V3: I cannot tell how He could love
A child so weak and full of sin;
His love must be most wonderful,
If He could die my love to win.
V4: It is most wonderful to know
His love for me free and sure;
But ‘this more wonderful to see
My love for Him so faint and poor.
V5: And yet I want to love Thee, Lord;
Oh, light the flames within my heart,
And I will love thee more and more,
Until I see thee as thou art.
A wonderful Hymn, it is good to sing it, as an ‘I’ with personal feeling, eg “And yet “I’ know that it is true’. Then It becomes more than a hymn, and a confession of our faith. Enjoy reflecting on the words, of another wonderful Hymn.
