What Wondrous Love is This?

 

Something for the weekend.  What Wondrous Love is This? and the Pieta.  After Michelangelo completed it and had the Pieta moved to display it, the workmen who did it refused to accept a penny for their hard labor, saying they would get their reward in Heaven.  I pray that they did, and I pray we all meet a similar fate.

What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul,
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.

When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down beneath God’s righteous frown,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul, for my soul,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul.

To God and to the Lamb, I will sing, I will sing;
To God and to the Lamb, I will sing.
To God and to the Lamb Who is the great “I Am”;
While millions join the theme, I will sing, I will sing;
While millions join the theme, I will sing.

And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on;
And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on.
And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing and joyful be;
And through eternity, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on;
And through eternity, I’ll sing on.

One Response to What Wondrous Love is This?

  • “We adore You, O Christ, and we bless You. Because by Your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.”

    Wondrous Love indeed: Christ loves us, forgives us, and redeems us. Even though we completely, utterly do not merit salvation.

    His Sacred Heart was so filled with love for us even during in His three hours agony on His Holy Cross.

    He loves us and forgives us despite the fact that we were utterly unjust in condemning Him. How could we? Not only is He all good and sinless. He is Our God and Reedeemer. And, He, despite all the horrid evil we did to him: it was completely unjust and disobedient; He still loves us and forgives us. That is wondrous, eternal, divine love, indeed.

    “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins; save us from the fire of Hell; take all souls to Heaven; and help especially those most in need of Thy mercy.”

    I am not worthy. That hand with that hammer is my hand when I fail to forgive, when I abandon charity, when I sin.

    “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on me a sinner.”
