1. Sing, O sing, the dear old story
Of our Savior’s matchless love;
Sing of Jesus and His glory
With the ransomed host above.

Sing, O sing the love of Jesus—
Sound His praises far and near;
Sing the wondrous story over,
’Till the whole wide world shall hear.

2. Sing of love to you so precious,
Tell, in song, how Jesus died;
Let sweet music draw the millions
To the dear Redeemer’s side. [Refrain]

3. Ye redeemed ones, sing the story!
Sing it o’er and o’er again,
Until every tribe and nation
Join to sing the glad refrain. [Refrain]
