Description

With a somber and somewhat mournful tone, this anthem would be a good choice for Holy Week or Communion. The text by the late J. Paul Williams, is written from the angels’ perspective as they watch the events of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday unfold. The anthem ends with a personal application by gently quoting the hymn “I Stand Amazed”: “How marvelous, how wonderful is my Savior’s love for me.”

Angels looked down and saw Gethsemane They saw God's Son in prayer Angels looked down and heard His loving plea They watched Him kneeling there They heard Him ask His Father "Is there any other way?" Angels looked down and wondered as He prayed. Angels looked down and gazed at Calvary They saw God's Son alone Angels looked down and heard His final plea They heard His somber groan They heard Him ask His Father "Why have You forsaken me?" Angels looked down and saw Him on a tree. They knew He was the Son of God And knew He was not afraid But they could never understand The choice that Jesus made. How marvelous! How wonderful! And my song shall ever be How marvelous! How wonderful! Is my Savior's love for me.
