I Stand Amazed

I was reminded of this hymn earlier in the week. I have hummed it and sung it to myself. Now I share it with you. I have only included a few verses and the chorus. Rich and simple truth is often found in our Christian hymns. Stand amazed!

I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean.

O how marvelous! O how wonderful!
And my song shall ever be
O how marvelous! O how wonderful!
Is my Savior’s love for me!

He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calvary,
And suffered and died alone.

When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see,
’Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me.

Here's a link to the hymn writer's bio.
