Representative Text

1 The half has never been told,
Of Jesus and His love;
The story will never grow old,
Of Jesus and His love;
He came, a child, to live with us,
To bear our earthly pain,
To teach the wayward how to live
And know that death is gain.

Refrain:
The half has never been told,
Of Jesus and His love;
The story will never grow old,
Of Jesus and His love.

2 Down from His mansions above,
The spotless Lamb of light,
So holy, on pinions of love,
In robes so pure and white—
He gave to us the fount of life,
A gracious gift to give;
He taught the ending of all strife,
Said, “Look to me and live.” [Refrain]

3 The loving Saviour hath borne
The ills creation shares,
That all of God’s children might find
The path to Him in prayer;
He gave to us redeeming love,
His songs of faith endure,
And we shall sing those songs above
On Zion’s happy shore. [Refrain]
