1 There is something in that story
Of the Saviour’s love for men;
It appeals to me, my brother,
Let me hear it told again.
Yes, there’s something in that story,
For my tears begin to roll,
And I feel a wave of gladness
Sweeping o’er my guilty soul.

Refrain:
There is something in that story
Of the Saviour’s love for men;
It appeals to me, my brother,
Let me hear it told again.
As it tells the love of Jesus,
How he died on Calvary,
Let me hear that story, brother,
Let me hear it told again.

2 There is something in that story,
For it makes my load grow light;
And the world, which seemed so dreary,
Now looks beautiful and bright.
Yes, there’s something in that story,
For it lifts my mind above
Tho’ts of envy, strife and hatred,
To a plane of peace and love. [Refrain]

3 There is something in that story,
For my very soul is stirred;
There is kindness in each sentence,
There is love in ev’ry word.
Yes, there’s something in that story
Which has won this heart of mine;
Loving Jesus, I will trust thee;
Take my heart, for it is thine. [Refrain]
