Psalm 89:1
"I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever:

          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.

            Chorus
            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.

            Chorus
            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 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
            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.

          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
            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.

          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
            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.
