1 Read it over again to me,
The promise to love so sweet,
That Jesus died to make me free
The wonderful words repeat.

Refrain:
Read it over again to me,
Wonderful story of love,
Read it over again to me,
My deed to a mansion above.

2 Read it over again to me,
I’m weary of sin and strife,
With Jesus thro’ eternity
Is better than lengthened life. [Refrain]

3 Read it over again to me,
That promise of love I’ll claim,
If aught can save, then surely He,
I’ll trust in His blessed name. [Refrain]
