The song that we have been singing in family devotionals this week is I Stand Amazed by Chas H. Gabriel. The interesting thing about this is that in our Wednesday night bible class we have been studying the gospel of Mark and the topic of our class was Amazing Jesus. The teacher had us notice how many people were astonished, amazed and astounded at Jesus teaching. Here are a few of the scriptures we noticed, Mark 1:21-22, Mark 1:23-27, Mark 5:41-42, Mark 15:5. Take some time and check them out.
I Stand Amazed
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!
For me it was in the garden
He prayed, "Not my will, but Thine"
He had no tears for His own griefs,
But sweat-drops of blood for mine.
In pity angels beheld Him,
And came from the world of light
To comfort Him in the sorrows
He bore for my sould that night.
He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calv'ry,
And suffered, and died alone.
When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see,
Twill be my joy thro' the ages
To sing of His love for me.
You can go listen to it at cyberhymnal here.
