I Will Sing the Wondrous Story

D
I will sing the wondrous story
       A7                  D 
Of the Christ Who died for me.

How He left His home in glory
        A7          D
For the cross of Calvary.

Chorus:
D
Yes, I’ll sing the wondrous story
       A7                  D 
Of the Christ Who died for me,

Sing it with the saints in glory,
         A7              D
Gathered by the crystal sea.

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.

Chorus

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.

Chorus

Days of darkness still come o’er me,
Sorrow’s path I often tread,
But His presence still is with me;
By His guiding hand I’m led.

Chorus

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.

Chorus
