Hymn/Song Information

How strange that souls whom Jesus feeds




How strange? That souls whom Jesus feeds
With manna from above.
Should grieve him by their evil deeds,
And sin against his love!


But ‘tis a greater wonder still,
That he from whom they stray,
Should bear with their rebellious will,
And wash their sins away,


Lord, has not yet my stubborn heart
Exhausted all thy grace?
Kind and forgiving as thou art,
Can I behold thy face?


Can such a wanderer be received
Into thy blest abode?
Have not my sins too often grieved
The Spirit of my God?


No; in thy love I yet behold
An undiminished store;
A depth unmeasured and untold,
A sea without a shore.
