I don't know if this is the song. It has "gathered by the crystal sea"

I Will Sing the Wondrous Story
Francis H. Rowley, 1854-1952
Peter P. Bilhorn, 1865-1936

I will sing the wondrous story of the Christ Who died for me,
How He left His home in glory for to die on Calvary.
Yes, I'll sing (Yes, I'll sing) the wondrous story (the wondrous story)
Of the Christ (Of the Christ) Who died for me (Who died for me),
Sing it with (Sing it with) the saints in glory (the saints in glory),
Gathered by (Gathered by) the crystal sea (the crystal sea).

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.
Yes, I'll sing (Yes, I'll sing) the wondrous story (the wondrous story)
Of the Christ (Of the Christ) Who died for me (Who died for me),
Sing it with (Sing it with) the saints in glory (the saints in glory),
Gathered by (Gathered by) the crystal sea (the crystal sea).

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.
Yes, I'll sing (Yes, I'll sing) the wondrous story (the wondrous story)
Of the Christ (Of the Christ) Who died for me (Who died for me),
Sing it with (Sing it with) the saints in glory (the saints in glory),
Gathered by (Gathered by) the crystal sea (the crystal sea).

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.
Yes, I'll sing (Yes, I'll sing) the wondrous story (the wondrous story)
Of the Christ (Of the Christ) Who died for me (Who died for me),
Sing it with (Sing it with) the saints in glory (the saints in glory),
Gathered by (Gathered by) the crystal sea (the crystal sea).

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 (Yes, I'll sing) the wondrous story (the wondrous story)
Of the Christ (Of the Christ) Who died for me (Who died for me),
Sing it with (Sing it with) the saints in glory (the saints in glory),
Gathered by (Gathered by) the crystal sea (the crystal sea).

I believe this is the song you meant

Victory In Jesus

I heard an old, old story,
How a Savior came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary
To save a wretch like me;
I heard about His groaning,
Of His precious blood's atoning,
Then I repented of my sins
And won the victory.

Chorus
O victory in Jesus,
My Savior, forever.
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him
And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory,
Beneath the cleansing flood.
I heard about His healing,
Of His cleansing pow'r revealing.
How He made the lame to walk again
And caused the blind to see;
And then I cried, "Dear Jesus,
Come and heal my broken spirit,"
And somehow Jesus came and bro't
To me the victory.


Chorus
O victory in Jesus,
My Savior, forever.
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him
And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory,
Beneath the cleansing flood.
I heard about a mansion
He has built for me in glory.
And I heard about the streets of gold
Beyond the crystal sea;
About the angels singing,
And the old redemption story,
And some sweet day I'll sing up there
The song of victory.


Chorus
O victory in Jesus,
My Savior, forever.
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him
And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory,
Beneath the cleansing flood.
