What Manner of Love Is This?

Amazing, the love that Thou hast for us
Amazing, that Thou would become one of us
Amazing, that Thou should give away Your life
That we may know of Thy love

Wonderful, the grace that Thou bestow upon us
Matchless, the mercy that falls from Thy throne
Incredible, the way that Thou draw near to us
And meet us where we are

If it were not for Thy awesome love
If it were not for Thy sacrifice
If Thou had not risen again
How lost we would be
How far from Thy face
Never escaping our sin

What manner of love
Oh, how could it be
That Thou, my God, should die for me?
