Composer: P. P. Bilhorn (1886)

Key: E♭ Major

I Will Sing the Wondrous Story

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.
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.
