Representative Text

1 O to be there, where the songs of glory
Float o'er the waves of the bright crystal sea;
This the refrain of the wondrous story,
"Jesus has died for me."
While still I linger in this world below,
Waiting till homeward I am called to go,
I will repeat o'er and o'er the story,
"Jesus has died for me.

2 O for a voice to proclaim the message
In ev'ry land and the isles of the sea,
"God's only Son is the Friend of sinners,
Jesus has died for me."
'Tis but a little that my hands can do
For this dear loving One so kind and true,
But I can tell to the world the story,
"Jesus has died for me."

3 Now that I've tasted thy love, O Jesus,
Taken my cross and am following thee,
Help me to tell this great truth to others,
"Jesus has died for me."
O that the world would seek the Father's face,
Trust in his mercy and forgiving grace;
Then how all hearts would rejoice in singing,
"Jesus has died for me."

4 O for a heart that will always love him,
Trusting his promise wherever I be;
Bearing in mind this sweet truth so precious,
"Jesus has died for me."
Washed in the blood of Jesus Christ my King,
Thro' endless ages I this song shall sing,
"Glory to God, everlasting glory,
Jesus has died for me."
