It Is A Thing Most Wonderful

Melody -

W. W. How, 1823-97

1. 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.

2. And yet I know that it is true;
He came to this poor world below,
And wept, and toiled, and mourned, and died,
Only because he loved us so.
  3. It is most wonderful to know
His love for me so free and sure,
To guide and help me on life's way,
A love for ever to endure.

4. And so I want to love thee, Lord;
O light the flame within my heart,
And I will love thee more and more,
Until I see thee as thou art.
