WHAT WONDROUS LOVE IS THIS
This beautiful, haunting melody with piano accompaniment is the perfect prelude, offertory, or special music for your Lent or Easter church service, or for general worship. "What Wondrous Love Is This" (sometimes called just "Wondrous Love") is a Christian folk hymn. The text was first published in 1811 and its melody adapted from a popular English ballad, "The Ballad of Captain Kidd." The words and melody were first published together in 1835 in The Southern Harmony, a book of shape note hymns gathered by William Walker. It is now included in hymnals of many Christian churches.
