Wonderful Wonderful Jesus


cffblog6.jpgJuly 9, 2017 (Sunday)

The hymn, "Wonderful, Wonderful Jesus" was written by Anna B. Russell (1862-1954) in 1921. The music was written by Ernest O. Sellers while he was teaching at the Baptist Bible Institute in New Orleans, Louisiana.

We all face difficult experiences in life sometimes. Perhaps you've experienced God's presence through a song that has brought you peace and comfort--a song that the Lord has implanted in your mind-- a song of deliverance, of courage, of strength. And this has helped you understand that Jesus is always willing to help. This is such a song.


(1) There is never a day so dreary,
There is never a night so long,
But the soul that is trusting in Jesus
Will somewhere find a song.
Wonderful, wonderful Jesus,
In the heart He implanteth a song:
A song of deliverance, of courage, of strength,
In the heart He implanteth a song.

(2) There is never a cross so heavy,
There is never a weight of woe,
But that Jesus will help to carry
Because He loveth so.
Wonderful, wonderful Jesus,
In the heart He implanteth a song:
A song of deliverance, of courage, of strength,
In the heart He implanteth a song.

(3) There is never a care or burden,
There is never a grief or loss,
But that Jesus in love will lighten
When carried to the cross.
Wonderful, wonderful Jesus,
In the heart He implanteth a song:
A song of deliverance, of courage, of strength,
In the heart He implanteth a song.

(4) There is never a guilty sinner,
There is never a wandering one,
But that God can in mercy pardon
Through Jesus Christ, His Son.
Wonderful, wonderful Jesus,
In the heart He implanteth a song:
A song of deliverance, of courage, of strength,
In the heart He implanteth a song.



Here is the hymn, sung by the London Fox Singers, a quartet with close harmony, a ca- pella, in our familiar style as a congregation:




Here is the same hymn, done as a concert presentation that elicits an emotional response on our part by the Ralph Carmichael Singers:
