Representative Text

1 O sweet is the story of Christ and His love,
So boundless, so precious, so free;
A perfect salvation, a fountain of joy,
A wonderful message to me.

Refrain:
O beautiful story of Christ and His love,
Of mansions prepared in His kingdom above.

2 The story grows better by telling it o’er,
And nearer it comes to the soul;
The vilest of sinners who hear and believe,
By it are made perfectly whole. [Refrain]

3 O wonderful story, repeat it again,
That beautiful story of old,
Of Christ and His glory, of Christ and His love,
‘Twill never, no, never grow old. [Refrain]
