Representative Text

1. Oh! sing the sweet, sweet story,
Of Jesus Christ above,
Of Jesus in his glory,
Of him whose name is love.
Oh! sing with music thrilling,
Let sweetest joy-bells ring,
Till many hearts are willing
To crown him Lord and King.

Oh! sing the sweet, sweet story;
Ring, gospel joy-bells, ring:
Hail Jesus in his glory,
And crown him Lord and King.

2. Oh! tell the sweet, sweet story,
Oh! tell it o'er and o'er,
Of Jesus Christ in glory,
Of love for evermore:
Of love which knows no ending,
The love of God above;
Justice and mercy blending,
In life and grace and love. [Chorus]

3. Oh! sweetest, sweetest story,
We carol notes of joy!
All hail the coming glory,
Praise doth our songs employ.
Oh! sing when comes the dawning,
Sweet by and by foretold;
Sing in the Heav'nly Morning,
The story sweet and old. [Chorus]
