1 They tell me a story
Of wonderful love,
How One came to earth from His mansion above,
and poured out His life-blood
Upon Calvary;
‘Twas Jesus my Savior, that suffered for me.

Chorus:
The story is true, I know it is true,
That wonderful story is true;
It is written on high,
And His word cannot die,
That wonderful story is true.

2 They tell me a story
Of wonderful light,
He rose from the grave in the pow’r of His might,
That one day in glory
With Him I might be;
O Jesus, my Savior that vict’ry for me! [Chorus]

3 They tell me a story
Of wonderful grace,
How I, tho’ a sinner, may see His dear face,
Since once in His mercy
He died to save me;
O Jesus, my Savior I’ll now live for Thee! [Chorus]
