Hope deferred maketh the heart sick;
but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.

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.
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 paths I often tread, But the Saviour still is with me; by His hand I’m safely 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.
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.
