1 There’s a story sweet and true,
Tho’ ‘tis old, ‘tis ever new;
‘Tis the story of my Saviour and his love;
How he hung upon the tree,
Even died for you and me,
To prepare us for his glorious realms above.

O repeat it o’er and o’er,
Some have never heard before
How that Jesus for us suffered, bled and died;
‘Tis a theme that ne’er grows old,
Sweetest story ever told,
‘Tis the story of our Saviour crucified.

2 Yes, I’ll tell it o’er and o’er,
Tell it now and ever more,
For the story of my Saviour ne’er grows old;
How he cleansed me from all sin,
Made me white and pure within;
‘Tis the dearest, sweetest story ever told. [Refrain]

3 When my life is ended here,
As I reach the portals there,
And the loved ones who have gone before I greet;
I shall tell them of his love,
How he brought me safe above,
To his glory will I tell the story sweet. [Refrain]
