“Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what He has done for my soul. “ – Psalm 66:16

I Will Sing the Wondrous Story

Verse 1:
I will sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me;
How He left His home in glory
For the cross of Calvary.
I was lost but Jesus found me–
Found the sheep that went astray;
Threw His loving arms around me,
Drew me back into His way.

Verse 2:
I was bruised, but Jesus healed me;
Faint was I from many a fall;
Sight was gone, and fears possessed me,
But He freed me from them all.
Days of darkness still come over me,
Sorrow’s paths I often tread,
But the Savior still is with me;
By His hand I’m safely led.

Verse 3:
He will keep me till the river
Rolls its waters at my feet;
Then He’ll bear me safely over,
Where the loved ones I shall meet.
Yes, I’ll sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me–
Sing it with the saints in glory,
Gathered by the crystal sea.
