Representative Text

1 I will sing the wondrous story,
Of salvation full and free,
How my Savior left His glory
To redeem and ransom me.

Refrain:
I will sing the wondrous story,
Though but young in years I be;
Jesus came from realms of glory
To redeem and ransom me.

2 Heavenly story of salvation!
How the Son of God on high
Came to earth in rich compassion,
Gave Himself for us to die. [Refrain]

3 I will sing this blessèd story,
Gladly sing it everywhere,
Of the Savior’s matchless glory,
And the love His children share. [Refrain]

4 I will sing the story sweetly,
And when life is sinking low,
I will trust Him then completely,
For my Savior loves me so. [Refrain]
