Music: I Marvel at the Miracle

John V. Pearson and Janice Kapp Perry


1. I marvel at the miracle
Of God’s great love for me.
I try but cannot comprehend
And ask how this could be.
For I had left behind my God
And lost my way through sin.
Still God loved me and sent His Son
To lead me back to Him.
2. I wearied of my weaknesses
And trials filled my days.
I cried out, “Lord, my burden’s hard—
Is there no other way?”
He said, “I give men weaknesses,
And if they come to me,
I give them strength to overcome
And I will make them free.”
3. I pled with God to shed His grace
And take away my sin.
He did, and yet I turned away
And stumbled once again.
At last I knelt before His throne
And offered Him my soul.
He wept, then gave it back to me
Renewed and washed and whole.
4. I wonder at the grace divine
and power to redeem;
That Christ alone could overcome
And change eternity.
My thanks cannot sufficient be.
My praise is incomplete.
For all I pay, my debt remains
For God’s great gift to me.
