1 Come and hear the grand old story,
Story of the ages past;
All earth's annals far surpassing
Story that shall ever last.
That the world has ever known.
2 Christ, the Father's Son Eternal,
Once was born a Son of man;
He Who never knew beginning
Here on earth a life began. [Refrain]
3 Here in David's lowly city,
Tenant of the manger-bed,
Child of everlasting ages,
Marty's Infant lays His head. [Refrain]
