234. I Will Sing the Wondrous Story

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.

Chorus:
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.

2 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. (Chorus)

3 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. (Chorus)

4 Days of darkness still come o’er me,
Sorrow’s path I often tread,
But His presence still is with me;
By His hand I’m safely led. (Chorus)

5 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. (Chorus)
