The Wondrous Story

This is the hymn I named my blog after.

Verse 1:
I will sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me,
How He left His home in glory,
For the Cross on 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.

Verse 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.

Verse 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.

Verse 4:
Days of darkness still come o’er me,
Sorrow’s paths I often tread,
But the Saviour still is with me,
By His hand I’m safely led.

Verse 5:
He will keep me till the river
Rolls its waters at my feet;
Then He’ll bear me safely over,
Where the loved ones I shall meet.

F.H. Rowley/Peter Bilhorn
