I Will Sing the Wondrous Story

Psalm 66:16
Come and hear, all you who fear God,
    and I will tell what he has done for my soul.

Psalm 89:1
I will sing of the steadfast love of the Lord, forever;
    with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations.

Psalm 145:6-7
They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
    and I will declare your greatness.
They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
    and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.

Luke 15:3-7
So he told them this parable:
 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?  And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’  Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

John 10:14-16
 I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me,  just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.  And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.


I will sing the wondrous story
Of the Christ who died for me
How He left the realms of 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,
Raised me up and gently led me
Back into the narrow way.

He will keep me till the river
Rolls its waters at my feet;
Then at last He’ll bring me over
Saved by grace and victory

Words: Francis H. Rowley (1886) Tune: Rowland H. Prichard, 1830, HYFRYDOL

It’s difficult to find the exact music for Robin Mark’s version because he uses the verses & chorus that traditionally go with the tune with which most Americans are familiar, but with the tune, HYFRYDOL (Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus), but I found a useable chart here.
