1 Let the whole world know that, for men below,
Jesus left his home above;
Sing it o’er and o’er, tell it more and more,—
Blessed story of his love.

Chorus:
Oh, the blessed story of his love!
Theme of men below, theme of saints above;
Nothing else can be as dear to me
As the story of his love.
Oh, the blessed story of his love!
Theme of men below, theme of saints above;
Nothing else can be as dear to me
As the Savior’s wondrous love.

2 Make its comfort known to the sad and lone,
More and more its power prove;
Let it strength impart to the burdened heart,—
Blessed story of his love. [Chorus]

3 Send its golden light thro’ the vales of night
To the souls who blindly rove;
Let it cheer the lost, guide the tempest-tost,—
Blessed story of his love. [Chorus]

4 Till the whole lost race have received his grace,
Till all nations look above,
Sing it o’er and o’er, tell it more and more,—
Blessed story of his love. [Chorus]
