1 Repeat the story o’er and o’er,
Of grace so full and free;
I love to hear it more and more,
Since grace has rescued me.

The half was never told,
The half was never told,
of Grace Divine, so wonderful,
The half was never, never told.

2 Of peace I only knew the name,
Nor found my soul its rest,
Until the sweet-voiced angel came
To soothe my weary breast.

The half was never told,
The half was never told,
Of peace Divine, so wonderful,
The half was never, never told.

3 My highest place is lying low
At my Redeemer’s feet;
No real joy in life I know,
But in His service sweet.

The half was never told,
The half was never told,
Of joy Divine, so wonderful,
The half was never, never told.

4 And oh, what rapture will it be,
With all the host above,
To sing through all eternity
The wonders of His love!

The half was never told,
The half was never told,
Of love Divine, so wonderful,
The half was never, never told.

Whittle in evangelical work. To this cause he gave (although a poor man) the royalty of his Gospel Songs, which was worth some thirty thousand dollars. His death was sudden. It occurred in the railway disaster at Ashtabula, Ohio, Dec. 30, 1876. ... Some of his verses have obtained wide popularity in most English-speaking countries. T… Go to person page >
