1 Repeat the sweet story of Jesus to me,
Oh, tell me the story once more;
Tho’ often I’ve heard it, each time it is told,
’Tis sweeter than ever before.

Refrain:
Oh, tell me the story of Jesus once more;
’Tis sweeter, yes, sweeter
Each time than before.

2 Oh, tell me once more of His wonderful love,
His goodness and mercy to me;
When hopelessly lost in the darkness of sin,
He found me and bade me go free. [Refrain]

3 Oh, tell me again of the land of the blest,
Where sorrow and sin never come;
Where I with the Savior shall evermore dwell,
Oh, tell me of Heaven, my home. [Refrain]
