Our hymn this last week has been “I Will Sing The Wondrous Story.” It was beautiful to watch Miss E sign this song while the rest of the family sang. The beauty of signing becomes all the more beautiful when we are singing about our Lord.
The words of this hymn pull you right in, thinking about all the Jesus did for us. From being lost to being hurt to being in the darkness, Jesus comes for us, heals us, helps us. So we should sing.
I Will Sing The Wondrous Story
words: Francis H. Rowley (1886)
music: Peter P. Bilhorn (1886)
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, 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.
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 o’er me,
Sorrow’s path I often tread,
But His presence still is with me;
By His guiding hand I’m led.
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.
