Representative Text

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

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]
