1 There’s a beautiful, wonderful story,
So gracious and tenderly true;
My soul overfloweth with glory,
While telling the story to you.

O beautiful, wonderful story,
Our Savior on Calv’ry was slain;
O beautiful, wonderful story,
Our Savior is coming again.

2 Our dear Savior, his glory forsaking
To suffer for you and for me,
Our sins in his own body taking,
Redeemed us, and now we are free. [Refrain]

3 All his chosen disciples denied him;
For fear, they forsook him and fled;
His enemies then crucified him,
They buried our Lord with the dead. [Refrain]

4 But death and its gloom he hath banished,
Before his great love they have fled;
Our fears in his light have all vanished,
For Jesus arose from the dead. [Refrain]
