94. Wonderful, Wonderful Jesus!

1 There is never a day so dreary,
There is never a night so long,
But the soul that is trusting Jesus
Will somewhere find a new song.

Wonderful, wonderful Jesus,
In the heart He implanteth a song:
A song of deliv'rance, 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. [Chorus]

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. [Chorus]

4 There is never a guilty sinner,
There is never a wand'ring one,
But that God can in mercy pardon
Through Jesus Christ, His Son. [Chorus]
