Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

There is a story sweet to hear, I love to tell it, too

Full Text

1 There is a story sweet to hear,
I love to tell it too:
It fills my heart with hope and cheer,
'Tis old, yet ever new.

Chorus:
T'is old, yet ever new;
T'is old, yet ever new;
I know, I feel it's true:
T'is old, yet ever new.

2 They tell me God the Son came down
From his bright throne to die,
That I might wear a starry crown,
And dwell with him on high. [Chorus]

3 They say he bore the cross for me,
And suffered in my place,
That I might always happy be,
And ransomed by his grace. [Chorus]

4 O wondrous love! so great, so vast,
So boundless and so free!
Low at thy feet my all I cast;
I covet only thee. [Chorus]
