Representative Text

1 Do you know the wondrous story?
Have you ever heard it told?
How that Jesus came from heaven,
Seeking lost ones from the fold?

Refrain:
Do you know the wondrous story?
Have you ever heard it told?
Do you know the wondrous story?
That with telling ne’er grows old?

2 Have you heard how much He suffered?
Hanging on the cruel tree?
That we all might have salvation,
And might live eternally. [Refrain]

3 Is it true that you have heard it?
Have the tidings reached your ear?
Then why not just now believe it,
And find comfort, hope and cheer. [Refrain]

Hall, Jane E., of Battleborough, Vermont, has in I. D. Sankey's Sacred Songs and Solos, 18S1, under the initials "J. E. H.," (1) "The love that Jesus had for me" (Love of Jesus); (2) "We shall have a new name in that land" (The New Name). The music in Sankey to these hymns is also by the same person. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
