Christian Camp Songs & Chorus Hymns #19

I spent many years in my late teens and early twenties working at Christian Camps.  I even met my husband at a Christian camp.  These wonderful memories of great experiences make Christian camp songs very special to me.

On top of featuring an old hymn each month in what I call "Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing" - I will also be featuring a chorus hymn every month - ENJOY!
Today's featured song is "Wondrous Love" - unfortunately I was unable to find any history on the origins of this beautiful song.  In my little chorus book it shows "traditional" in the space that usually lists both the author and composer of each song.  This hymn is not to be confused with "What Wondrous Love is This" - that is a totally different song from our feature song today. 


Please take time to listen to both YouTube videos below the lyrics.  I love the two vastly different versions of this hymn: the first video is classical sounding and the second video is down to earth and "Appalachian".  I included this hymn in my "Camp Song" series as opposed to my "Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing" series because this featured song is sung with no instruments which is perfect for the camp setting.


Wondrous Love
Words & Music by ?

1. 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.----------------



2.  When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down,  When I was sinking down O my soul;---------- 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.----------------


3.  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.----------------


4.  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!----------------
