Wonderful, merciful Savior
Precious Redeemer and Friend
Who would have thought that a Lamb
Could rescue the souls of men
Oh you rescue the souls of men

Counselor, Comforter, Keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopelessly lost the way
Oh, we hopelessly lost the way

You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

Almighty, infinite Father
Faithfully loving Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne
Oh, we're falling before Your throne

    I have been discouraged by some of the events and happenings in our church lately, even considered either change or stop altogether. But this song uplifted me above these worldly things and reminded me why I chose to go to church. Jesus is the reason I'm there, and Jesus is the reason all the others are there too

    It is god's love and mercy that has brought us salvation, it is nothing we did ourselves. In fact god chose us it was not our doing. It is a lovely song of praise and adoration in humility to the god who loves so much that he gave his very best to rescue all humanity. As many as are willing to receive jesus christ. It's free salvation is yours to receive, please say yes to him today while you still have the chance because no one is assured of tomorrow and god loves you so much.

    This is all time favorite song. I love to sing this song to my savior! It is such a gentle and strong song at the same time. Selah did an amazing job with their version. I know god smiles when we lift him up with this song, so let's all sing it! Praise you father!
