422. 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.

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. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]

4 Days of darkness still come o'er me,
Sorrow's paths I often tread,
But the Savior still is with me:
By His hand I'm safely led. [Refrain]
