Full Text

1 When a child, I used to hear my mother
Sing a song that never has grown old;
‘Twas the first time I had heard of the Savior,
‘Tis the sweetest story ever told.

Refrain:
That’s the sweetest story ever told,
It’s a story that ne’er grows old;
How His wonderful love bro’t Him down from above,
‘Tis the sweetest story ever told.

2 I have yielded to this Christ, my Savior,
And the half has never yet been told;
For each day he is to me growing dearer,
‘Tis the sweetest story ever told. [Refrain]

3 I am walking ev’ry day with my Savior,
And each day new treasures I behold;
How we thro’ His love and grace find God’s favor,
Is the sweetest story ever told. [Refrain]
