Representative Text

1 Have you heard this wondrous story
Of the victory for God,
How the Lord of life and glory,
Sin beneath His feet hath trod?

Refrain:
Sing it out, oh, sing it ever,
Till the hills take up the strain,
And the saints beyond the river—
Join to sing, He lives again!

2 Have you heard the wondrous story
Of a wide and open grave,
Out of which the Lord of glory
Hath come forth with pow’r to save? [Refrain]

3 Have you heard the wondrous story
Of the captive souls set free
By the Lord of life and glory,
Who hath bro’t them liberty? [Refrain]

4 May I tell the wondrous story,
For I know its worth so well,
How the Lord of life and glory,
Saved my soul from death and hell? [Refrain]
