1. I have heard a most wonderful story
Of Jesus, the Savior and King;
How He came from the bright realms of glory
Glad news of salvation to bring.

Refrain
O wonderful, wonderful Savior,
Thy praises with joy we will sing:
For coming on earth to redeem us
We crown Thee forever our King!

2. With the poor and the lowly He mingled—
Yes, even the vilest of men,
Showing mercy and love as they lingered,
To hear His blest words unto them. [Refrain]

3. A poor woman was brought to Him helpless,
To be stoned for her sins in the past;
He replied to them, He that is sinless,
By him let the first stone be cast. [Refrain]

4. See Him weep at a grave in the hour
When tears of anguish are shed;
See Him bursting the tomb by His power,
Saying, Lazarus, come forth from the dead! [Refrain]

5. Yes, He came to give life to the dying,
To heal all the broken in heart;
And He promised a home where’s no sighing,
And loved ones shall ne’er again part. [Refrain]
