8. Sing the Sweet Story

1 Sing, over and over,
Beautiful story of old,
More dear to the spirit,
Better the more it is told,
Each heart that awakes in this world of woe,
Has need of the Saviour of men to know.

Sing, sing the sweet story,
Sing, softly and gently,
Sing, sing till its glory,
Fills the earth with its glow.

2 Here’s bread for the starving,
Warmth to the naked and cold,
Life, life to the dying,
All in that story of old,
The spirit abiding in depths of grief,
Shall find in its healing a sure relief. [Chorus]

3 Peace comes to the mourning,
Joy that can never be told,
All found in believing,
Just the sweet story of old,
Then sing it again to the slaves of sin,
Their steps to the pathway of truth to win. [Chorus]
