Representative Text

1 ‘Twas wondrous love, ‘twas love divine,
That wash’d away those sins of mine;
That bro’t my soul from deepest night,
To walk in God’s own blessed light.

‘Twas wondrous love, ‘twas love divine,
That wash’d away those sins of mine;
And I am happy all the day,
Because my sins are washed way.

2 ‘Twas wondrous love, ‘twas love divine,
And I accept the gracious sign;
The Spirit’s witness with the blood,
Assures me I am born of God. [Refrain]

3 ‘Twas wondrous love, ‘twas love divine,
That drew this wand’ring heart of mine
To Thee, dear Lord, that I may be,
A branch that beareth fruit for Thee. [Refrain]

4 ‘Twas wondrous love, ‘twas love divine,
‘Twas God the Father’s grand design;
And heaven is filled with joy to know,
A soul’s redeemed from endless woe. [Refrain]

Clark, William Henry. (Racine, Wisconsin, April 8, 1854--November 8, 1925, Rome, New York). Free Methodist. In his infancy, his parents returned to their former home in New York State, where his mother soon died, and his father married a close friend of hers, who forecast, after William's conversion in 1873, that one day he would be a bishop. He served the Susquehanna Conference of his denomination as a pastor and district superintendent from 1876 until 1919, when his stepmother's prediction came true. Meanwhile, he had been a member of the joint commission of the Free and Wesleyan Methodist Churches which compiled the Hymnal of 1910, and contributed some items to it. He died in office, requesting no eulogy at his funeral. --Arlene Clyde… Go to person page >
