34. The Grand Old Story of Salvation

1 We tell it as we journey t'ward the mansions built above,
The grand old story of salvation;
We sing it out with gladness, in the melodies of love,
The grand old story of salvation.

Chorus:
Ring it out, ring it out,
Ring, to ev'ry tribe and nation,
Ring it out, ring it out,
The grand old story of salvation.

2 His hand can lift the fallen and His blood can make them white,
The grand old story of salvation;
His love can pierce the darkness with a never-fading light,
The grand old story of salvation. [Chorus]

3 We'll sing it in the battle for its notes are victory,
The grand old story of salvation;
We'll sing it in our trials, till the passing shadows flee,
The grand old story of salvation. [Chorus]

4 The angels look with wonder, yet their harps can never tell,
The grand old story of salvation;
His ransomed, cloth'd with beauty, shall the praise of Jesus swell,
The grand old story of salvation. [Chorus]
