500. 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, 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 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 path I often tread,
but the Savior still is with me;
by his hand I’m safely led. (Refrain)
