Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

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. 

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. 

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. 

4.	Days of darkness still come o'er me, 
	Sorrow's paths I often tread, 
	But the Savior still is with me; 
	By His hand I'm safely led. 

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. 

	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.
