Hymns of My Youth II: Sing the Wondrous Story

Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Philippians 2:58


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.

Yes, Ill sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ Who died for me,
Sing it with the saints in glory,
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.

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.

Days of darkness still come oer me,
Sorrows path I often tread,
But His presence still is with me
By His hand Im safely led.

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