1 I will sing the wondrous story
of the Christ who died for me,
how he left the realms of glory
for the cross on Calvary.

Refrain:
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,
raised me up and gently led me
back into the narrow way. [Refrain]

3 Faint was I, and fears possessed me,
bruised was I from many a fall;
hope was gone, and shame distressed me:
but his love has pardoned all. [Refrain]

4 Days of darkness still may meet me,
sorrow's path I oft may tread;
but his presence still is with me,
by his guiding hand I'm led. [Refrain]

5 He will keep me till the river
rolls its waters at my feet:
then he'll bear me safely over,
made by grace for glory meet. [Refrain]
