I Stand All Amazed

About the Song

Music and Lyrics by Charles H. Gabriel
Arrangement and Additional lyrics by Sally DeFord
This arrangement is part of the “I Stand All Amazed” cantata.

Lyrics

I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me
Confused at the grace that so fully he proffers me
I tremble to know that for me he was crucified
That for me, a sinner, he suffered, he bled and died

Chorus:
Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me
Enough to die for me
Oh, it is wonderful
Wonderful to me

I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine
To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine
That he should extend his great love unto such as I
Sufficient to own, to redeem and to justify

(Repeat chorus)

I think of his hands, pierced and bleeding to pay my debt
Such mercy, such love and devotion can I forget?
No, no, I will praise and adore at the mercy seat
Until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet

I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me
Secure in the promise of life in his victory
Thus ransomed from death I will live to my Savior’s praise
And sing of his goodness and mercy through endless days

    Hello Sally DeFord!
    I have been using your beautiful arrangements for years! Thank you for blessing all of our lives!

    I have been searching for a solo arrangement of “I Stand All Amazed” that will be appropriate for me to use at the Thanksgiving Program at the MTC this year. I have played through a dozen arrangements. The one I love best is your SATB arrangement of this piece. It is beautiful and tender. This is the perfect arrangement, but it obviously won’t work for a solo. Until I read through all your FAQ, I had considered changing some of the arrangement to fit our needs. I promise I will not do that. Any possibility you could take your arrangement and work it into a solo? I really want to use it! I wish I could show you what we are doing with this so you could see how well it would fit in. 1200 missionaries would love it!

    Thank you for reading this-
    I would love to hear back from you!
    Anne

      Anne, I may modify it for solo at some point–I’ve thought about it! It definitely won’t happen before you need it though. If you need to modify parts to fit a soloist, you’re more than welcome to do that. Just don’t distribute the score beyond your performers and it perfectly fine. Best of luck with it! 🙂

    Our stake is at present practicing “I Stand All Amazed” SATB. We have a dynamic director and a competent pianist. The ONLY way Sally could have come up with this is through inspiration and the ONLY way we are going to do this any kind of justice is through the same spirit. Thank God for the brilliant and INSPIRED musicians in this His Son’s Church.
