Wonderful Love of Jesus ~ hymn

Wonderful Love of Jesus

If you were to think about the love of Jesus, what words would you use? Take a minute and write down the words you decide upon. I’ll wait.

My words?
Wonderful (obvious from the title of this one, right?)

Amazing

Complete

Unconditional

Uncompromising

Unending

Free

Gift

My rescue

My salvation

My hope

My purpose

How many of these echo your thoughts?

Why do you think that we come up with these words, when we are thinking about the love of Jesus?

I’ll bet you have several verses that come to mind also. If not, grab a Bible concordance or head over to Blue Letter Bible and see what you come up with when you look up the word “love.”

The verse that is in our hymn book under the song Wonderful Love of Jesus is Jeremiah 31:3 – I have loved you with an everlasting love.

Other verses I think of:

I John 4:7-8 Love one another, for love is of God. He who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God. For God is love.

John 3:16 For God so love the world that He gave his only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

John 13: 34 A new commandment I give to you, that you are to love one another; just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

John 14: 15 If you love me, you will keep my commandments.

Romans 8:39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Do you sing this song? The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases. His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning. Great is Thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion says my soul. Therefore I will hope in Him.

It comes from Lamentations 3. And does a great job of summing up the wonderful love of our Jesus, our savior.

I am thanking God for his Wonderful Love.

Blessings,
At Home.

Wonderful Love of Jesus

lyrics: E. D. Mund (1883)
music: Edmund S. Lorenz (1883)

1 In vain and high and holy lays, My soul her grateful voice would raise;
For who can sing the worthy praise of the wonderful love of Jesus!

Refrain:
Wonderful love!
Wonderful love!
Wonderful love of Jesus!
Wonderful love!
Wonderful love!
Wonderful love of Jesus!

2 A joy by day, a peace by night; In storms a calm in darkness light;
In pain a balm, in weakness might, Is the wonderful love of Jesus.

3 My hope for pardon when I call, My trust for lifting when I fall;
In life, in death, my all in all, Is the wonderful love of Jesus.
