There is so much richness in this passage it’s hard to even know where to begin to unpack it.

Christ is our ultimate example. He teaches us how to be obedient and faithful to God, how to live our lives in total surrender to Him. He is our advocate, pleading for us day and night. He is our salvation. Wow.

I am just constantly in awe that we have a savior who understands us. He is not merely an administrator sitting in some far away place telling us how things should be run with no understanding of the daily grind. No. He left Heaven to walk this road with us. He suffered and was tempted just as we are. As such His compassion and sympathy for us are even greater and He longs to bring us to Himself.

Christ has for sin atonement made
What a wonderful Savior!
We are redeemed, the price is paid
What a wonderful Savior!

Refrain

What a wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Jesus!
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Lord!

I praise Him for the cleansing blood
What a wonderful Savior!
That reconciled my soul to God
What a wonderful Savior!

Refrain

He cleansed my heart from all its sin
What a wonderful Savior!
And now He reigns and rules therein
What a wonderful Savior!

Refrain

He walks beside me in the way:
What a wonderful Savior!
And keeps me faithful day by day;
What a wonderful Savior!

Refrain

He gives me overcoming power
What a wonderful Savior!
And triumph in each trying hour
What a wonderful Savior!

Refrain

To Him I’ve given all my heart:
What a wonderful Savior!
The world shall never share a part:
What a wonderful Savior!

Refrain
