1
I HEARD the blessèd story told,
Of Jesus crucified,
How once He took a bondman's form,
And here at Calv'ry died.
I saw by faith the judgement fall,
By faith I heard His cry,
And knew for me He suffered shame,
For me He stooped to die.
2
I heard the blessèd story told,
Of Jesus glorified,
How He in dying met the foe
And all his power defied.
I saw Him then ascended high
Upon the Father's throne,
I knew His vict'ry set me free,
His triumph was my own.
3
I heard the blessèd story told,
Of Jesus satisfied,
When every ransomed tongue shall swell
The praise of Him who died.
I'll see Him then by all acclaimed,
I'll triumph and adore,
And know the fulness of His love
When with Him evermore.

A.J.H. Brown
