Representative Text

1 A story is winging its way,
O'er mountain and valley and sea;
Of Jesus who lived and died,
For you and me.
And over and over again,
I'll tell the old story so true;
He died on the cross for the love of the world,
He died for the love of you.

Chorus:
Believe the old story, 'tis true,
This wonderful story is true,
He died on the cross for the love of the world,
He died for the love of you.

2 Forever and ever I sing,
Of Jesus who died on the tree;
Who wore on his brow the thorns
For you for me.
And over and over again,
I'll tell the old story so true;
He died on the cross for the love of the world,
He died for the love of you. [Chorus]

3 The fall of the sparrow he views,
With pity its suff'ring to see;
So surely he notes the way,
Of you and me.
And over and over again,
I'll tell the old story so true;
He died on the cross for the love of the world,
He died for the love of you. [Chorus]
