1 O I have got good news for you!
A story wonderful and true;
’Twill make you happy, that I know,
It made me glad, and now I go—

To sing my great Redeemer’s song,
To sing my great Redeemer’s song,
To sing my great Redeemer’s song,
With the happy saints above.

2 I once was far away from God,
On ruin’s dark and fatal road,
And little dreamed I’d see the day
That I should tread the narrow way— [Refrain]

3 O’er this wild waste I loved to roam,
My back to God and Heav’n and home,
When Jesus met me far astray,
And beckoned me to come away— [Refrain]

4 He said on Calvary’s cross He died,
A sacrifice for sin was made,
And all because He loved me so;
Then how I could do else than go— [Refrain]

5 Now everyone that’s standing by
O ’twas for you the Christ did die!
This moment, too, He waits for thee,
Then just believe and you’ll be free— [Refrain]

6 Whene’er the record you believe,
You life eternal shall receive,
And soon from pain and sorrow free
You’ll join that glorious company— [Refrain]
