Representative Text

1. O let me tell it once again,
The story of His love,
Who came to seek and save the lost,
And guide them safe above.

O tell the story once again,
The story of His love;
The story that with rapture fills
The boundless realms above.

2. He bore our frail humanity,
Our Brother He became,
That He, upon the blood-stained cross,
Might bear our sin and shame. [Refrain]

3. Come unto Me, His tender call;
The Spirit doth entreat,
The Bride, the Church, re-echoes, Come;
Let each the call repeat. [Refrain]

4. For whosoever will may come—
Exhaustless the supply—
And, from life’s everlasting fount,
May drink and never die. [Refrain]
