Wonderful Words of Life

This is a hymn about the word of God.

It was written by American composer, conductor, hymnwriter and gospel singer Philip Paul Bliss (1838–1876).

It has been translated to many languages, including:
  • French - "Répétez-les moi tours les jours"
  • German - "Schalle wieder im höhern chor" by Ernst Gebhardt,
  • Malagasy translation: See "Eva tonga aty izao"
  • Spanish - "Oh, cantádmelas otra vez" by Julie A. Butler;
  • Swahili -"Nimbie mara tena, Maneno ya uzima"
  • Swedish - "Sjung, o shung dem igen för mig"
  • Tagalog - "Pagayayatco mangegan"

With meter with refrain, it is almost-always set to WORDS OF LIFE (Bliss) - the tune composed with the words by the author.

Sing them over again to me,
Wonderful words of life;
Let me more of their beauty see,
Wonderful words of life;
Words of life and beauty
Teach me faith and duty.

Beautiful words, wonderful words,
Wonderful words of life;
Beautiful words, wonderful words,
Wonderful words of life.

Christ, the blessed one, gives to all
Wonderful words of life;
Sinner, list to the loving call,
Wonderful words of life;
All so freely given,
Wooing us to heaven. 

Sweetly echo the gospel call,
Wonderful words of life;
Offer pardon and peace to all,
Wonderful words of life;
Jesus, only Savior,
Sanctify forever.
