May 11, 2023 - Psalms 13-17

There’s a verse in Psalm 13; David writes, “I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me” (13:6). Indeed, our God has dealt bountifully with us! We ought to sing to him. May I, today, simply include these verses from Francis Rowley’s hymn? May we find ourselves, often, singing to the Lord.


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 Savior 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.

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. --Francis H. Rowley (1886)
