I Stand Amazed Hymn History and Lyrics

I Stand Amazed Hymn Lyrics

I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how he could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean.

How marvelous! How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! How wonderful
Is my Savior’s love for me.

He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them his very own;
He bore the burden to Calvary,
And suffered and died alone.

How marvelous! How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! How wonderful
Is my Savior’s love for me.

Oh, what kind of love is this?
You would die so I would live?
I stand amazed.
I stand amazed.

Bore the curse of all my sin —
Made your enemy your friend.
I stand amazed.
I stand amazed.

Oh, what kind of love is this?
You would die so I would live?
I stand amazed.
I stand amazed.

Bore the curse of all my sin —
Made your enemy your friend.
I stand amazed.
I stand amazed.

When with the ransomed in glory
His face I, at last, shall see,
’Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of his love for me.

How marvelous! How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! How wonderful
Is my Savior’s love for me.

Jesus Paid It All Hymn Lyrics and Story

I Stand Amazed Hymn Story

I Stand Amazed is a hymn from the pen of Charles Gabriel (1856-1932) who is credited with between 7000 and 8000 songs.

Charles Gabriel

Charles Gabriel was a self-trained musician who learned music while still a teenager. He later taught music in singing schools common in the 19th and early 20th century.

He composed songs, anthems, cantatas and also edited a collection of songs. He was associated with the major music publishers of his day.

This song is a song of gratitude for the atoning death of Jesus Christ and is based on Luke’s account of Jesus sweating blood in the Garden of Gethsemane. This story is only found in Luke’s gospel and not in the other gospels.

Luke 22:41-44 reads, “And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be done. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground” (KJV).
