329. I Will Sing the Wondrous Story

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.

Yes, I’ll sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me;
Yes, I'll 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. (Refrain)

3 Days of darkness still come o’er me,
Sorrow’s path I often tread,
But the Savior still is with me;
by his hand I’m safely led. (Refrain)
