1 If you have learn’d the story
Of Jesus and His love,
Each day repeat its music sweet
To those who blindly rove.

Refrain:
Repeat it, repeat it,
Wherever you may be,
This story of love about Jesus above,
Who died on Calvary!

2 Some souls have never heard it,
And yours the task may be
To tell them of this priceless love—
This blessing rich and free. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ some have heard the story
And still unsaved remain,
It yet might win their souls from sin
If it is told again. [Refrain]

4 Repeat it to the weary,
And to the heart that grieves;
Repeat, repeat the message sweet,
Till all the world believes! [Refrain]
