The Matchless Gift

I remember the day He called to me
In a church so far away
His spirit reached out and captured me
As the altar call was played
But I could not move out of my seat
As I sat with hand up raised
And we left that night before I prayed
To ask Jesus in my heart

Later that week the pastor came
To my friend’s house to see me
He asked if I wanted to pray that prayer
And I told him yes sir please
As I prayed I felt my body chill
And the sweat gushed out if me
I knew that Jesus had come in
And I knew He had touched me

What a wonder
What a Savior
What a matchless gift He gives
What a privilege
What a mystery
How He washed away my sin
I will always have that memory
Of the day He saved my soul
I have never been the same again
As He made my new life whole

I returned back home to my job and friends
But a change had just occurred
And I realized I had to change
I went back to my old church
I counseled with the pastor
And I lent my voice to the choir
But the friends I used to hang with
Were still there to lead me sour

Two years went by and I changed a lot
But the old ways wouldn’t go
I went back out to Iowa
I found a love that God had sown
Two months later I moved out that way
And I married that lady fair
Thirty-eight years later we’re serving God
And I know He’s always there

What a wonder
What a Savior
What a matchless gift He gives
What a privilege
What a mystery
How He washed away my sin

I will always have that memory
Of the day He changed my life
I have never been the same again
Since the day I took my wife
Jesus gave her to me
It’s the best thing He has giv’n
What a wonderful redeemer
He has made this life worth liv’n

What a wonder
What a Savior
What a matchless gift He gives
What a privilege
What a mystery
How He washed away my sin
