One of the greatest hymns ever written, and a popular staple of most hymnals, is What Wondrous Love Is This. The stirring lyrics tell the story of the greatest love of all-time, Godís love to undeserving, sinful human beings. Though itís a folk hymn, the truths contained within itóChristís bearing the curse of sin for us at the cross, Godís eternality as epitomized in His name ďI Am!Ē, our freedom from death thanks to Christís sacrificeócould not have been put better were a team of PhDs to give it their best shot. The words are greatóthe tune, on the other hand, is lousy. Music theorists will tell you itís an excellent example of the Dorian mode, but careful listeners will note that its dour strains donít match up well with the awesome wonder of Godís love, with the song of praise to God, with the Christianís elation at being free from death. Great words desperately in need of a new tuneóand thatís what Iíve attempted to do with this one. I donít know if thisíll eventually be the tune associated with these words, or if itíll be a forgotten footnote of history, like Wallingford Daviesís setting of O Little Town of Bethlehem, but I do know thisóand that is, if I were a music director, Iíd take this over that trashy Dorian melody any day. If you are looking for a tune that better expresses the joy of Godís wondrous love, then this may be exactly what youíre waiting for!
