I WILL SING THE WONDROUS STORY

  Lyrics

Verse 1
I will sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me
How he left the realms of glory
For the cross on Calvary
Yes, I’ll sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me
Sing it with his saints in glory
Gathered by the crystal sea

Verse 2
I was lost but Jesus found me
Found the sheep that went astray
Raised me up and gently led me
Back into the narrow way
Yes, I’ll sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me
Sing it with his saints in glory
Gathered by the crystal sea

Verse 3
Days of darkness still may meet me
Sorrow’s path I oft may tread
But his presence still is with me
By his guiding hand I’m led
Yes, I’ll sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me
Sing it with his saints in glory
Gathered by the crystal sea

  Sample Introduction

In Psalm 66, the psalmist calls us to, “Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul.” So let us do just that in this hymn, as we declare the goodness of God in calling us to himself and guiding us.
