Representative Text

1. No other story will bear repeating
As often as this is told;
God’s glad good news of His love to sinners
Are tidings which never grow old.

Refrain
Tell it again and again,
Tell it again and again,
The Gospel story, of grace and glory,
Bears telling again and again.

2. Proclaim with joy how the cross of suff’ring
Will never be borne again.
That only glory awaits the Savior,
That soon He will come to reign. [Refrain]

3. Go tell the story in far off countries,
Let ev’ry poor sinner hear
How Christ the Savior has died to win them,
His love overcomes all fear. [Refrain]

4. The whole sweet story is not yet finished,
The sequel is but begun;
When all the ransomed are safely gathered,
E’en then it will not be done. [Refrain]

5. Each heart that opens to hear the tidings,
Receiving the Savior’s love,
Will add a page to redemption’s history
Rehearsed in the Home above. [Refrain]
