I Sing of Jesus

Representative Text

1 I sing of Jesus, the King immortal
Who came from glory my soul to win,
Who brake the fetters of death's dark portal,
Who opened Paradise and entered in.

I sing of Jesus: O praise Him worthy name,
My faithful Savior, my Friend forever;
With all the ransomed I would His love proclaim,
Till all shall crown Him their Lord and King.

2 I sing of Jesus, who chides me never,
Tho' far I wander on plains of night,
A tender Shepherd who leads me ever
Back to the narrow way, the path of light. [Refrain]

3 I sing of Jesus; O wondrous story!
He brings salvation to sinners lost;
Soon all the nations will praise, in glory,
The Man who ransomed them at awful cost. [Refrain]
