Representative Text

1 There’s a precious bible story,
‘Tis the sweetest ever heard,
And we hope that all will learn it,
And remember ev’ry word.

Blessed story of a King,
And the joy he came to bring,
Hallelujah, hallelujah to his name!
O ‘tis such a wondrous story,
Of the Lord of life and gory,
Hallelujah to his name!

2 Very poor was our Redeemer
When a babe he came on earth,
He was cradled in a manger,
But the angels sang his birth. [Refrain]

3 All his life he worked for others,
On the cross he bled and died;
‘Twas to purchase man’s redemption
That our Lord was crucified. [Refrain]

4 Now he lives and reigns in glory,
On his Father’s throne above,
Where we all may dwell forever
And be happy in his love. [Refrain]
