I have heard of Jesus in Bethlehem born,
Of whom it hath been said,
That a star the wise men followed from far,
Till they reached His lowly bed.
He is my Saviour ! This same Jesus of whom I’ve heard;
He is my Saviour! I’ve found it in His Word.
I have heard of Jesus on Galilee’s wave;
The wind obeyed His will,
And the sea grew calm at hearing His voice
In the wondrous ” Peace, be still!”
I have heard of Jesus at Bethany’s home,
When standing by the grave,
How He cried, ” Come forth, O Lazarus, now ! ”
In His mighty power to save.
I have heard of Jesus on Calvary’s brow,
He died a Saviour true;
And He said, ” Forgive them, Father, I pray,
For they know not what they do.”
I have heard of Jesus in sepulchre laid,
In death’s dark, sullen gloom ;
How He burst the bars, and rising, came forth,
Mighty Victor from the tomb.
