1 The sweetest story told on earth,
Or heard in heav'n above,
Is told of Jesus and His birth,
Of Jesus and His love.
O story never old,
The sweetest ever told!
Until the gates of gold swing back for me;
I'll tell it o'er and o'er
And then on yonder shore
It still forevermore my song shall be.
2 He took upon Himself the guilt
Of all my sins and thine,
And on the cross of Calvary
He paid thy debt and mine. [Chorus]
3 "There was no other good enough
To pay the price of sin;
He only could unlock the gate
Of heav'n and let us in." [Chorus]
4 "O dearly, dearly hath He loved
And we must love Him too,
And trust in His redeeming love,
And try His works to do." [Chorus]
