    Verse 1
    There is a story so strange, yet true,
    Story beyond all compare;
    Of a great love sent from above
    Down to a world of sin and despair,
    Theme of the songs that the ransomed sing
    In their bright mansions above,
    Theme of the songs that the Christian sings
    Here in the courts of love.

    Chorus
    Wonderful story, how can it be?
    Christ from His glory came just for me!
    Tell it, ye ransomed, His praises repeat,
    Wonderful story to me!

    Verse 2
    God to the angels commissioned not
    Here the glad messege to tell,
    But to the saved, snatched from the grave,
    Gave He the charge that story to tell.
    Down through the ages 'twas e'er the same,
    Always a faithful band
    Told the sweet story of Jesus' love,
    Told of Redemption's plan.

    Chorus
    Wonderful story, how can it be?
    Christ from His glory came just for me!
    Tell it, ye ransomed, His praises repeat,
    Wonderful story to me!

    Verse 3
    If the Redeemer had not come down,
    Down to a world cursed by sin,
    Rebels to save, His name engrave
    On sinful hearts and cleanse them within,
    Day would be night and so drear our case,
    But, praise the Lord for the Christ who brought
    Peace and eternal life.

    Chorus
    Wonderful story, how can it be?
    Christ from His glory came just for me!
    Tell it, ye ransomed, His praises repeat,
    Wonderful story to me!
