Representative Text

1 Listen to the wondrous story,
Old, so old, yet ever new;
Of the Lord who came from glory—
Came to die for me, for you.

Refrain:
O, the wondrous, wondrous story!
Old, so old, yet ever new;
Of the Lord who came from glory,
Came to die for me, for you.

2 In the earthly home so lowly,
‘Mong the hills of Galilee,
Was a life all pure and holy,
That was lived for you, for me. [Refrain]

3 All His words so gently spoken,
Loving deeds and purpose true;
All His promises unbroken
Were for me and were for you. [Refrain]

4 O, the sacrifice He offered,
When He died on Calvary;
O, the agony He suffered!
It was all for you, for me. [Refrain]

5 Now once more He reigns in glory,
Over death the vict’ry won;
And He bids us tell the story—
Tell it out to every one. [Refrain]
