I Will Sing the Wondrous Story

Fran­cis H. Row­ley, 1886.

1.      I will sing the wondrous story of the Christ Who died for me.
How He left His home in glory for the cross of Calvary.

Refrain:

Yes, I’ll sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ Who died for me,
Sing it with the saints in glory,
Gathered by the crystal sea.

2.      I was lost, but Jesus found me, found the sheep that went astray,
Threw His loving arms around me, drew me back into His way.

3.      I was bruised, but Jesus healed me, faint was I from many a fall,
Sight was gone, and fears possessed me, but He freed me from them all.

4.      Days of darkness still come o’er me, sorrow’s path I often tread,
But His presence still is with me; by His guiding hand I’m led.

5.      He will keep me till the river rolls its waters at my feet;
Then He’ll bear me safely over, where the loved ones I shall meet.
