8.8.8.8.8.8.


1
GREAT God of wonders! all Thy ways
Are wondrous, matchless, and divine;
But the blest triumphs of Thy grace -
Most marvellous! - unrivalled shine.
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?
Or who had grace so rich and free?
2
With wonder filled, and holy joy
We hail the pardon of our God;
Pardon for sins of deepest dye,
A pardon traced in Jesus' blood.
To pardon thus is Thine alone;
Mercy and grace are both Thine own.
3
Soon shall this strange, this wondrous grace,
This perfect miracle of love,
Fill the wide earth, while sweeter praise
Sounds its own note in heav'n above.
Who is a pardoning God like Thee?
Or who has grace so rich, so free?

S. Davies (1723-1761)
