1 Christ has for sin atonement made -
What a wonderful Savior!
We are redeemed, the price is paid -
What a wonderful Savior!

What a wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Jesus!
What a wonderful Savior is Jesus, my Lord!

What a wonderful Savior!
That reconciled my soul to God -
What a wonderful Savior! [Refrain]

What a wonderful Savior!
And now He reigns and rules therein -

What a wonderful Savior!
And triumph in each trying hour -
What a wonderful Savior! [Refrain]
