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. He will keep me till the river Rolls its waters at my feet; Then He’ll bear me safely over, When my journey is complete.
