Representative Text

1 Oh, tell the story o’er and o’er,
Of love so full and free;
I give myself, my all to Him,
Who bled and died for me.

The half has never yet been told,
Of love so full and free;
The half has never yet been told,
The blood it cleanseth me.

2 He died for me, naught but His love
Could melt this heart of mine;
Oh, come, and take the precious gift
Of peace and joy divine. [Refrain]

3 His life, His death, His precious love,
To you shall all be given;
Come now, accept His offered grace,
And reign with Him in heaven. [Refrain]
